  • Stavros Vagionitis MSc, PhD
    Oligodendrocytes produce myelin, a lipoproteinic substance that is wrapped around neuronal axons in a life-long process called myelination. I am studying the contribution of oligodendrocytes and their precursors (OPCs) to myelin maintenance and r...
  • Alessio Vagnoni Dr Alessio Vagnoni
    The main goal of my research is to better understand the mechanisms of neuronal ageing in vivo. I am particularly interested in studying how macromolecules, proteins and organelles are trafficked within neuronal axons and how this process is regul...
  • Maris Vainre
    I'm investigating whether mindfulness training improves attention and whether this improvement translates into workplace performance.
  • Natalie Valle Guzman
    I work on different studies investigating disorders of motivation and impulsivity, both with healthy volunteers as with patients with various disorders. I am responsible for participant recruitment and management of the research, and I help run s...
  • Ms Vaka Valsdottir
    I am currently working on a project that will use EEG recordings to examine the effect of speaker gaze on infants' statistical language learning.
  • Charlotte van Coeverden Charlotte van Coeverden MSc
    I am interested in how rewards are coded in the brain and how this reflects on social behaviour.
  • Dr Jelle van den Ameele
    I am a neurologist with an interest in developmental neurobiology and mitochondrial genetics. In the lab, we study how cells and tissues respond to mitochondrial dysfunction, focusing on neural stem cells and the brain. Our goal is to identify nov...
  • Ms Mariska van der Hoff M.S.C.
    The influence of conversational therapies in moderately to severe depressed adolescents on relapse
  • Dr Agatha van der Klaauw
    I am currently working with Professor Sadaf Farooqi at the Institute of Metabolic Science. We use a number of genetic approaches, including whole-exome sequencing, to identify novel genes involved in hypothalamic development in patients with sever...
  • Dr Sander van der Linden
    Dr. Sander van der Linden is a University Lecturer in Psychology, Director of the Cambridge Social Decision-Making Lab and a Fellow of Churchill College. His research interests include social perception, normative influence, the “wisdom of crowds”...
  • Miss Aritha van der Stouw A.T.C.
    The influence of Conversational Therapies in moderate to severe depressed adolescents on relapse.
  • Professor Anne-Laura van Harmelen
    Anne-Laura van Harmelen is an affiliated researcher at the department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge. Van Harmelen is professor of Brain, Safety and Resilience at the Institute of Education and Child Studies at Leiden University in the Net...
  • Ms Francesca van Tartwijk
    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a lethal neurodegenerative disease, characterised by the death of motor neurons. Though the causes of ALS are unknown, mutations in several genes have been linked to ALS, including in that encoding the protei...
  • Georgios Varsos Dr Georgios Varsos
    My focus has been on modelling of brain haemodynamics, particularly describing a terminal situation of cerebral circulation, associated with ischemic strokes. A new methodology was created which can be used for estimating brain’s zero-flow pressur...
  • Szilvia Vas Dr Szilvia Vas
    My research interest focuses on the regulation of sleep-wake architecture and brain oscillation in different behavioural states. I joined Professor Jenny Morton's research group in 2015 to study the alterations of sleep-wake pattern and EEG spec...
  • Frantisek Vasa Mr František Váša
    I study methods for the construction and analysis of human structural and functional brain networks, using data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Using these methods, I hope to help characterise healthy adolescent development, and to identify...
  • Deniz Vatansever Deniz Vatansever
    Extensive neuroimaging research has identified a set of brain regions with prominent activity during “no task” baseline conditions, collectively known as the default mode network. The DMN is hypothesized to drive a variety of functions including f...
  • Bert Vaux Professor Bert Vaux
    --grounding of phonological learning in a mathematical implementation of evolutionary information theory. --phonological cognition. --implications of selective aphasias, first and second language acquisition phenomena, processing and production ef...
  • Ms Maria Vedechkina
    I am interested the mechanisms through which childhood adversity, including abuse and neglect, shapes neurodevelopment and mental health across the lifespan. The aim of my research is to identify biobehavioural markers of risk and resilience to in...
  • Michele Vendruscolo Professor Michele Vendruscolo
    Our research at the Centre for Misfolding Diseases (https://www.cmd.ch.cam.ac.uk/) is aimed at understanding the molecular origins of neurodegenerative disorders. We have set up an interdisciplinary programme that brings together methods and conc...
  • Dr Lalanti Venkatasubramanian
    Circuit implementation of memory-based action selection in Drosophila larvae
  • Jeroen Verheyen Jeroen Verheyen
    Nanomedicine and neuroscience have always been great passions of mine. My drive is towards creating nanotherapeutics that enable brain repair and regeneration. Currently, I am working on establishing a highly modular nanotechnology platform for ne...
  •  Dr Petra Vertes
    I lead the Systems and Computational Neuroscience group in the Department of Psychiatry, and I am a fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. I am also one of the co-founders of the Cambridge Networks Network - a forum for academics across different d...
  • Dr Martin Vestergaard
    I investigate theoretical and functional relationships among cognitive and economic constructs of decision psychology and communication. I use psychophysical experimentation, computational models and brain imaging techniques to identify behavioura...
  • Dr Deborah Vickers
    Deborah Vickers is funded by a Medical Research Council Senior Fellowship in Hearing Research. She leads the ‘Sensory Optimisation Using Neuroscience for Devices’ (SOUND) Lab, where research is focussed on understanding sound perception, impact...
  • Dr Margreet Vogelzang
    My research combines psycholinguistic, neuroscientific, statistical, and cognitive modeling methods to investigate different aspects of language processing. Specifically, I work on syntactic processing throughout the lifespan. My research entails ...
  • Jacqueline von Seth
    Speech perception is inherently multisensory. When following a face-to-face conversation, we rapidly integrate both visual and auditory signals to extract linguistic meaning. This is especially important in adverse listening conditions such as in ...
  • Professor Valerie Voon
    Why do we repeat behaviours that we know are bad for us? Or make impulsive poorly considered decisions? These decision making processes are relevant in our daily lives and can be hijacked in disorders of pathology. The Voon lab spans across Camb...
