  • Caroline Fabre Dr Caroline Fabre C.G.
    Substrate-borne communication during Drosophila courtship
  • Dr Yuxing Fang
    My research interest includes using neuroscientific techniques such as EEG/MEG and fMRI studies in conjunction with natural language processing techniques to investigate how the human brain processes language.
  • Miss Seyedeh-Rezvan Farahibozorg
    My current research is aimed at characterisation of semantic networks in the brain based on source reconstructed concurrent Electro-/Magnetoencephalography (E/MEG)). Multiple brain areas are thought to play role in semantic cognition. However, th...
  • Dr Mark Farrow
    Targeted delivery of therapeutics for hard-to-treat cancers
  • 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 ...
  • Dr Shaline Fazal
    Research into the role of peripheral immune cells in Huntington's disease. A particular focus is on the possible influence that these peripheral immune cells may have on the seeding and propagation of mutant Huntingtin between cells. A patient and...
  • Anne Ferguson-Smith Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith
    Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic mechanism causing genes to be expressed depending on their parental origin. Our research investigates the mechanism and evolution of genomic imprinting and the function of imprinted genes in development and dise...
  • Dr Hugo Fernandes
    I am interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal cell loss in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. In particular, we are exploring the role of oxidative stress and ER stress in human (iPSC-derived) dopamine neurons us...
  • Dr Maria Angeles Fernandez
    My main interest is the study of signalling pathways and molecular mechanisms involved in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease, and its use as a target for the possible therapy of these diseases. Actually, my rese...
  • Rocio Fernandez Mendez
    I am currently working as a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Clinical Neurosciences. I am involved in a number of projects within the Outcome Registry Intervention and Operation Network (ORION) and I am also the research lead of the O...
  • Emilio  Fernandez-Egea Dr Emilio Fernandez-Egea
    My research interests are mostly the biological and clinical aspects of chronic schizophrenia. I’m the Clozapine Clinic Lead for the local MH Trust (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust). We study treatment resistant schizophrenia ...
  • Dr Andre Ferreira Castro
    So far my research has been driven by a deep fascination for the shape–function relationship in neuroscience. I have been particularly interested in understanding how neuronal structural patterns combined with rich neuronal dynamics provide the b...
  • Mr Emre Fertan
    I have a background in behavioural neuroscience, during which I studied the behavioural and neuropathological changes in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. My current work focuses on characterising cellular (iPSC and organoid systems), synaptoso...
  • Johanna J. S. Finnemann Johanna J. S. Finnemann
    My primary research interests concern sensorimotor integration and somatosensation which I investigate from a computational as well as experimental point of view. In particular I aim to understand how optimal control, predictive processes, motor l...
  • Paola Finoia Dr Paola Finoia
    My current work combines neurobehavioral observation, fMRI and EEG in patients with Disorders of Consciousness (DoC). In particular, my research investigates which factors might predict patient performance, which technique (or combination of techn...
  • Sheila Flanagan Dr Sheila Flanagan
    The possibility that shared neural mechanisms for processing language and music exist is an area of increasing interest. Anecdotal evidence that musical exposure or training leads to improvements in literacy and working memory is now gaining supp...
  • Paul Fletcher Professor Paul Fletcher
    I am interested in psychosis. I agree with the long tradition of clinical psychiatric research which suggests that, during a psychotic illness, the world is a strange place because strange associations are formed and inconsequential stimuli are as...
  • Dorothea Floris Dorothea Floris
    I am interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of autism spectrum conditions (ASC) with special focus on cerebral lateralization and functional connectivity. During my PhD I investigated atypical hemispheric specialisation in ASC at differen...
  • Professor Thanasis Fokas PhD-MD
    Analytical algorithms for several medical imaging techniques including PAT, SPECT, MEG, EEG.
  • Dr Tamsin Ford CBE
    My research focuses on interventions and services to optimize the mental health of children and young people. Both mental health and services are interpreted broadly to include wellbeing as well as distress rather than children exceeding somewhat ...
  • Mrs Elizabeth Fordham
    I am considering the concept of re-birth at adolescence and the impact that this may have on pupil wellbeing. My study is an EdDoc and therefore I am considering how I can combine the work I do with adolescents as a counsellor in private practice,...
  • 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...
  • Maxime Fouyssac Mr Maxime Fouyssac
    My research project in David Belin’s lab at the department of Pharmacology and within the BCNI of Cambridge is to characterize the functional contribution of the astrocytes to the development of habitual and compulsive cocaine self-administration ...
  • 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...
  • Dr Rene Frank
    I am interested in understanding the native molecular architecture of synapses with a particular focus on postsynaptic membranes that contain N-methyl D-aspartic acid receptors (NMDARs). NMDARs mediate Ca2+-dependent signalling, acting in concer...
