  • Dr Melissa Andrews
    My research focuses on assessing the localization and transport of ectopically expressed integrins in adult CNS, in order to better target integrins to sites of injury for therapeutic treatment. We have shown that enhancing the regeneration of do...
  • Jean-claude Baron-Cohen Professor Jean-Claude Baron
    My research focuses on the pathophysiology of ischaemic stroke and the mechanisms underlying subsequent deterioration or recovery, including neuronal damage, tissue inflammation and long-term plasticity processes. In terms of methodology, my appro...
  • Dr Gonca Bayraktar
    My research aims to understand how synaptic plasticity governs learning and memory function of the brain and how gradual loss of function or impairment leads to neurodegeneration. treatment of dementia like Alzheimer’s disease. My research focuses...
  • Dr Giulia Bonetto
    Studies of neural circuit plasticity focus almost exclusively on functional and structural changes of neuronal synapses. In recent years, however, myelin plasticity has emerged as a potential modulator of neuronal networks. Indeed, myelination of ...
  • Philip Buttery Dr Philip Buttery
    We work on the role of rho family GTPases and their regulators in the plasticity of CNS synapses, as related to brain disease and recovery from brain injury. We are currently focussing on a regulator of the GTPase Rac1 which is upregulated with n...
  • Stephen Eglen Dr Stephen Eglen
    I use computational tools to help investigate mechanisms of neural development. In particular, I study the formation of retinotopic maps and retinal mosaics in vertebrate visual systems. In addition, I am interested in the analysis of large-scale...
  • James Fawcett Professor James Fawcett
    Axon regeneration in the damaged CNS: Regeneration of axons after CNS damage is blocked by several molecules in the environment and by loss of intrinsic regeneration ability, We modify the environment to make it more permissive and modify axonal ...
  • Polytimi Frangou
    I am interested in understanding the plastic changes that brain circuits undergo during training and in developing interventions that facilitate brain plasticity when these brain circuits are compromised. I combine cutting-edge high-field brain im...
  • Johannes Friedrich Dr Johannes Friedrich
    My research lies at the intersection of computational neuroscience and machine learning, targeting the general question of how statistics can help us decipher neural computation. Most of my work centered on decision making, in particular on implem...
  • Dr Delia Fuhrmann
    I am interested in lifespan development and plasticity. My current research focus is executive functions, such as reasoning and working memory, and their neural substrates. I am investigating this topic using mostly large, publicly available data-...
  • Dr Elisa Galliano
    The ability of nerve cells to plastically modify themselves is one of the characteristics that make the brain millions of times more powerful and capable of learning than any supercomputer. I am particularly interested in the ways in which, during...
  • Ingo Greger Dr Ingo Greger
    Information transfer in the brain occurs at synapses where chemical transmitters are released from presynaptic terminals and are received by postsynaptic receptors. Glutamate is a major neurotransmitter and glutamate receptors are key to synaptic ...
  • Guillaume Hennequin Dr Guillaume Hennequin
    I study the link between physiology and behaviour from a computational viewpoint. I am interested in the dynamics of sensory and motor cortices, and how they support complex computations such as movement generation or perceptual inference. Through...
  • Jennifer Wanyi Jia
    My research is on myelin plasticity during adulthood and how myelin dynamics may be influenced by neuronal plasticity. Oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system produce myelin, which is essential for ensuring fast signal transmission in neuro...
  • Dr Alexis Joannides
    We have established a scaleable and clinically compatible system for generating and propagating neural stem cells from human embryonic stem (ES) cells. Using this platform, and building on our work on mouse ES cells demonstrating a correlation of ...
  • Susan Jones Dr Susan Jones
    The primary focus of our research is the function of AMPA and NMDA glutamate receptors at excitatory synapses in the brain. We study the properties of glutamate receptors, glutamatergic synaptic transmission, and synaptic plasticity. We are intere...
  • Andrew Kolarik Dr Andrew Kolarik
    I am a Research Associate at Cambridge University in Professor Brian Moore’s research group. My work looks at auditory perception among hearing impaired and blind listeners. I am interested in how sensory impairment affects spatial awareness, and...
  • Zoe Kourtzi Professor Zoe Kourtzi
    My work aims to understand the role of learning and experience in enabling humans of all ages to translate sensory experience into complex decisions and adaptive behaviours. Adaptive cognitive abilities are critical for survival and social interac...
  • Andras Lakatos Dr Andras Lakatos
    Andras’s MRC funded lab focuses on regulators of signaling/transcriptomic networks underlying astrocyte-neuron-synapse interactions in health and in disease. Our specific questions are what cues trigger or maintain the neuroprotective or detriment...
  • Giovanna Mallucci Professor Giovanna Mallucci
    My lab is interested in understanding mechanisms of neurodegeneration. The central theme is the identification of common pathways across the spectrum of these disorders (which include Alzheimer's and related diseases) that are relevant for both me...
  • Dr Susanna Mierau
    My research focuses on the fundamental rules that govern the development of synaptic and network activity in the cortex and how this process is disrupted in autism and related disorders, with the ultimate goal of developing novel therapies. I com...
  • David Parker Dr David Parker
    We examine cellular and synaptic properties in neuronal networks using the lamprey spinal cord locomotor network as a model system. While this network is claimed, and often cited, as being characterised, there are actually significant gaps in our ...
  • Arkoprovo Paul Mr Arkoprovo Paul
    Arko is studying dendritic spine plasticity in neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). In the latter he is modelling synaptic development in the autistic brain, with a particular interest in activity dependent dendritic plastic...
  • Ole Paulsen Professor Ole Paulsen
    The primary interest of my group is the relationship between network oscillations and synaptic plasticity. Network oscillations naturally organise spike timing conducive to spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), a strong candidate for a mechani...

    I am a social psychologist, a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Social Psychology (LSE) and an EdD candidate at the Faculty of Education (Cambridge). The core of my time is spent as an educator in a non-traditional setting. I design and...
  • John Henry Stockley Dr John Stockley
    I am interested in using in vitro systems to model and understand complex neuron and glial interactions, particularly the interaction between oligodendrocytes, their precursors and neuronal axons for CNS repair as well as understanding memory. I a...
