  • Professor Clare Baker
    We are investigating a broad range of questions relating to the development of neurogenic placodes and the neural crest, two embryonic cell populations in vertebrates that together build the entire peripheral nervous system. Current projects inclu...
  • Nicky Clayton, Professor Nicky Clayton, FRS
    Nicky studies the development and evolution of cognition in members of the crow family (including jackdaws, rooks and jays) and humans. Her work has challenged many of the common-held assumptions that only humans can plan for the future and remini...
  • Ian Cross Professor Ian Cross
    My research explores the biological and cultural bases for human musicality, in particular, the mechanisms underlying the ways in which inter-individual synchrony may impact upon the experience of social relationships, those underlying the experie...
  • Barry Keverne Professor Barry Keverne
    Professor Keverne has long standing experience in behavioural neuroscience and has, in the past 10 years, brought molecular genetic techniques to focus on brain development and investigate how genetic perturbations of the brain influence brain fun...
  • Madeline Lancaster Dr Madeline Lancaster
    Human brain development exhibits a number of unique characteristics, such as dramatic size expansion, unique cell types, and distinct neural stem cell behaviors. These characteristics are difficult to examine in model organisms such as mice and ar...
  • Dr Nicholas Mundy
    We study the evolutionary genetics of brain size and sensory systems in primates. In particular, we are interested in the evolution and selection of colour vision polymorphisms in New World monkeys and lemurs, the evolution of vomeronasal recept...
  • Andrea Santangelo Dr Andrea Santangelo M
    My work focuses on gene variation associated to emotional and cognitive behaviour. In particular, I study polymorphisms in the serotonin transporter gene that are linked to vulnerability to early-life stress and the development of affective disord...
