  • Maxime Bertoux Dr Maxime Bertoux CPsychol
    At the interaction between cognitive neurosciences and clinical neuropsychology, my aim is to develop novel procedure of assessment, diagnosis and follow-up for neurodegenerative diseases such as Frontotemporal Dementia or Alzheimer's disease. In...
  • Malcolm Burrows Professor Malcolm Burrows
    I work on the properties of neurons and the circuits they form to understand how they control behaviour. 1. Motor control. How do nonspiking local interneurons organise motor neurons to generate limb movements? How do spiking interneurons proce...
  • Simon Butler Simon Butler
    Puberty is associated with a period of psychological change concomitant with structural changes in the brain. An endocrinological association has been proposed. In the context of education, the effects on executive function, particularly the socia...
  • Daniel Campbell-Meiklejohn Dr Daniel Campbell-Meiklejohn
    I study social cognition with a focus on social influence and prosocial behaviour with a neuroscience focus. I have moved to the University of Sussex where I am currently the PI of The Social Decision Laboratory. Come visit! http://www.thesoc...
  • Mario de Bono Dr Mario de Bono
    We seek to understand how neural networks are assembled, function and evolve. C. elegans is a powerful system to study neural circuits. The worm has exactly 302 neurons each of which can be identified. EM reconstructions have identified synapti...
  • Suzanna Forwood Dr Suzanna Forwood
    My interest is in cortical learning, and particularly the interaction between learning and perception. Previous work has used animal models and computational models to understand cortical function. I am now looking at human models of learning, w...
  • Dana Galili Dr Dana Galili
    Did you ever wonder what makes males and females respond differently to the same stimulus? Sex differences are basic for reproduction, parenting and other social interactions. I work on Drosophila sexually dimorphic behaviours and their underlying...
  • Katie Hall Dr Katie Hall PhD
    I am principally interested in the field of behavioural neurosciences with a particular focus in understanding how neurodegenerative pathologies cause dementia symptoms and behavioural dysfunction, as well as developing potential neuroprotective t...
  • Tony Holland Professor Tony Holland
    The focus of our interdisciplinary research is on learning disabilities (intellectual disabilities/mental handicap) from different perspectives. Research to date has had the following main themes. First, the relationship between specific genetical...
  • Dr Bianca Jupp
    My research primarily concerns investigating the neurobiology underlying the behavioural trait of impulsivity and related cognitive endophenotypes and how these confer risk for developing drug abuse and addiction. I am particularly interested in t...
  • Jonathan Kanen Jonathan Kanen
    I am an MD/PhD candidate and Gates Cambridge scholar. The brain chemical serotonin is implicated in a wide range of affective and behavioural processes and is a key drug target in numerous psychiatric disorders, however its exact role is not well...
  • Johannes Kohl Dr Johannes Kohl
    Neural circuits underlying social behaviours
  • Tilman Lesch Tilman Lesch
    My research is focused on human cognition and brain mechanisms relevant for learning and decision-making under uncertainty. I’m interested how personality factors such as impulsiveness or novelty seeking are related to individual’s decision-making...
  • Dr Marwa Mahmoud
    My research interests lie in the field of social signal processing and human behaviour understanding, which includes expressions of emotions or medical conditions. My research draws on computer vision, machine learning, Human Computer Interaction ...
  • Miss Elena Mainetto
    I am a Research Assistant working in Professor Fletcher’s lab on different projects aiming to study the psychological and interoceptive contribution to eating. These projects involve measurement of metabolic functioning (e.g., body composition, gu...
  • Brian McCabe Dr Brian McCabe
    The neural mechanisms of learning and memory, particularly imprinting in the domestic chick. The young of many species, when exposed to a conspicuous object, rapidly learn the object's characteristics and subsequently narrow their social preferenc...
  • Laurel S Morris Laurel S Morris
    I have studied disorders of addiction, focussing on correlates of impulsivity and compulsivity. I am also interested in psychopharmacology; how neurotransmitter dynamics of neural circuits influence cognition.
  • Professor Jenny Morton
    Our research is focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration and on developing strategies to delay or prevent the death of neurones in injured or degenerating brain, particularly in Huntington's disease. We are also interes...
  • Sharon Neufeld
    I am a quantitative psychologist interested in understanding the course and interplay of multiple domains of mental health in young people. My work has shown how treatment-as-usual mental health services are associated with a subsequent reduction ...
  • Alister Nicol Dr Alister Nicol
    Neuronal encoding in learning and memory
  • Birgitta  Olofsson Dr Birgitta Olofsson
    How does an animal evaluate food and how is this information used to modify its feeding behaviour appropriately? In many animals food provides a reinforcing feedback after it is eaten that influences subsequent food-seeking behaviour. Variation ...
  • Dr Alessandra Onida
    Neuropsychological rehabilitation, neural basis of behaviour
  • Miss Sandra Pietsch
    I joined Professor Morton's research group in 2011. Research in the lab aims to understand the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration and abnormal behaviour in Huntington's disease (HD). I'm focusing on the role of synaptic modulators (specifical...
  • Anujan Poologaindran
    Originally from Toronto (Canada), I am a neuroscientist at Cambridge (UK) working on building a life in clinical neurosurgery. My scientific work intersects at functional neurosurgery, behavioural neuroscience, and brain mapping with a special fo...
  • Trevor Robbins Professor Trevor Robbins
    Research interests span the areas of cognitive neuroscience, behavioural neuroscience and psychopharmacology. Main work focuses on the functions of the frontal lobes of the brain and their connections with other regions. These brain systems are re...
  • Sabine Rühle Dr Sabine Rühle
    By combining behavioural, genetic, electrophysiological and optical techniques, I aim to investigate how sensory inputs and motivational states are integrated to produce behavioural outputs.
  • Júlia Sala-Bayo
    I am interested in the neural mechanisms that underlie executive functions and cognitive control. The main aim of my research is to gain understanding of the neural circuit involved in cognitive flexibility. Specifically, how dopamine in stratal...
  • William Schafer Dr William Schafer
    The fundamental nature of mental phenomena such as perception, learning and memory is one of the remaining scientific mysteries. Since the neuroanatomy of mammalian nervous systems is exceedingly complex and incompletely characterized, it is diffi...
  • Yoshiro Shiba Yoshiro Shiba
    Anxiety and fear are adaptive responses against a potential/imminent threat. These consist of changes in physiological (heart rate, blood pressure, endocrine responses etc.), cognitive (attention, vigilance etc.) and behavioural (flight, freeze, f...
  • Dr Anne-Laura van Harmelen
    My research aims to understand the differential mechanisms that link negative family environments where children may be emotionally abused and/or neglected (child emotional maltreatment; CEM) with later mental health disorders, or resilience from ...
  • Szilvia Vas Dr Szilvia Vas

  • Luca Villa
    My PhD focuses on brain structure and function in adolescent depression, investigating differences in cortical thickness, white matter, and resting-state functional connectivity between adolescent patients with depression and controls. My PhD also...
  • Alice White Miss Alice White
    I am investigating the neural correlates of decision-making in patients with Huntington's Disease (HD). HD is a genetic neurodegenerative disease in which mutant forms of the huntingtin protein accumulate in the brain. Patients have three main typ...
  • Joyce Whittington Dr Joyce Whittington
