  • Giles Yeo Dr Giles Yeo
    I study brain control of body-weight, and currently have two main aims: Identifying new players in the hypothalamic control of energy balance. a. Genetic studies point to the brain as having a crucial role in modulating appetitive behaviour. A col...
  • Steve Young Professor Steve Young
    My primary interest is in adaptive learning in spoken dialogue systems. This currently involves modelling human machine dialogues using the framework of Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs). The research issues addressed incl...
  • Yizhou Yu
    My main research focuses on developing potential therapeutic targets for Alzheimer's disease using cell and fly models, in combination with human genetic, biochemical, behavioural and brain imaging data. I am also involved in a collaborative proj...
  • Dr Patrick Yu-Wai-Man PhD, FRCPath, FRCOphth
    I am an academic neuro-ophthalmologist with a major research interest in optic neuropathies, neurogenetics and mitochondrial eye diseases. I hold joint clinical appointments at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and Moorfields Eye Hospital in Lon...
  • Dr Jinxing Yue
    My primary research interest is to study spoken word perception with EEG. I have been working on developing a novel paradigm based on short-term habituation, which serves as a tool to study the cognitive processing of spoken words in the pre-atten...
  • Dr Gwyneth Zai
    My research area focuses on the genetics and pharmacogenetics of psychiatric disorders. Almost all psychiatric disorders are complex and heterogeneous in nature and my research aims to identify homogeneous phenotypes, specifically cognitive profi...
  • Adriana Zainurin
    My research focuses on the relationship between brain inflammation, blood brain barrier permeability and cognition in cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD). More specifically, the research aims to investigate whether brain inflammation and blood br...
  • Dr Rashid Zaman FRCPsych
    I am a psychiatrist and researcher interested in collaborative and translational research in number of psychiatric disorders, including, ADHD, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Depression, OCD and Schizophrenia. I am also intersted in neuromodulation t...
  • Dr Shahid Zaman
    The main theme of our research is to understand the role of amyloid, tau, inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction in the genesis of cognitive impairment and dementia in people with Down's syndrome.
  • Natalia Zdorovtsova
    My research focuses on establishing links between attributes of brain structure, brain function, and behaviour in children with neurodevelopmental conditions like ADHD and autism. I am interested in applying complex systems approaches - such as Co...
  • Elena Zevgolatakou
    Investigation of the behavioural and neural basis of recovery in post-stroke aphasia.
  • Suyi Zhang
    The systems neuroscience of human pain and aversive learning.
  • Buyun Zhao Buyun Zhao
    The ultimate function of the nervous system is to facilitate survival. To accomplish this task in a dynamically changing environment, the animal's behavioural strategies must alter accordingly given its context. One of the fundamental basis of thi...
  • Chao Zhao Dr Chao Zhao
    My research focuses on mechanism of remyelination of central nervous system following demyelination in various conditions. After demyelinating injury, the system activates a repair process, which involves oligodendrocyte progenitor cells turning i...
  • Zhen Zhong Dr Zhen Zhong
    Mechanism of prion-like propagation of mutant SOD1 misfolding from cell to cell in Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
  • Hisham  Ziauddeen Dr Hisham Ziauddeen MRCPsych PhD
    I am a Senior Clinical Research Associate working with Prof. Paul Fletcher. I work on brain reward systems using pharmacological fMRI and behavioural measures, to study the role of environmental influences and opioid and dopaminergic systems in co...
  • Mr Chisomo Zimphango
    Effective timely monitoring of cerebral metabolism along with other metrics following a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is required to predict onset of secondary brain damage. To fulfil this, my goal is to integrate microdialysis with spectrometric ...
  • Dr Leor Zmigrod
    Dr Leor Zmigrod is a Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge. Her research combines methods from experimental psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience to investigate the psychology of ideological adherence and group identity formatio...
  • Miss Katharina Zuhlsdorff
    I am interested in the neural basis of reinforcement learning and cognitive flexibility in relation to depression and other psychiatric disorders. I use multimodal neuroimaging and behavioural datasets in my research and aim to translate findings ...
  • Maarten Zwart Mr Maarten Zwart
    Dendrites are the postsynaptic structures of neurons, specialised to receive and integrate inputs from other cells. The dendritic geometry, regulated by intrinsic programmes of cell type specification and extrinsic factors during development, crit...
