  • Dr Zahid Padamsey
    Our aim is to understand how nutrition impacts brain function and energy use. We focus on how dietary manipulations (e.g. calorie restriction, high fat diet) affect the cortex, which we probe in vivo using two-photon imaging and electrophysiology ...
  • Leonie Pakulat
    I am interested in the role of kisspeptin expressing neurons in sexual behaviour and reproduction in female mice.
  • Miss Claudia Pallucca
    My research focuses on the effect of stroke and other cerebrovascular diseases on cognition and emotion, from a behavioural and biological point of view. In particular, my PhD project will involve the study of apathy in stroke patients: we will ...
  • Claudia Pama Claudia Pama
    Currently I am based at the Wellcome Trust Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute in the lab of Dr Karadottir, investigating the pattern of developmental cortical myelination as well as the function of myelin in learning - under...
  • Yunisa Pamela
    I am working on congenital insensitivity to pain and other rare diseases related to pain and itch.
  • 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 ...
  • Mr Nicholas Pasternack
    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a devastating neurodegenerative disorder with both motor and cognitive symptoms. At present, no treatments exist to modify the rapidly progressive course of either the motor or cognitive symptoms of the disea...
  • Miss Marlene Patterer
    The aim of this research project is to provide new insights into the function and impact of exogenous (transplanted) senescent disease-associated induced Neural Stem Cells (iNSCs) within a 3D cellular environment using cerebral organoids. Fibrobla...
  • Karalyn Patterson Dr Karalyn Patterson FRS, FMedSci, FBA
    I study language and memory in adults, mainly from the perspective of the patterns of disruption to these cognitive functions that occur as a result of brain damage or disease.
  • Roy Patterson Dr Roy Patterson
    We have developed a computational model of the auditory signal processing that transforms a sound wave into the auditory image you hear in response to that sound wave. We investigate how the cochlea and neural centres in the auditory pathway proce...
  • Mr Luke Pattison
    My research focuses on the role of proton-sensing G protein-coupled receptors in inflammation.
  • Alexander Patto Dr Alexander Patto
    SPG11 loss-of-function mutations can cause any of three neurodegenerative diseases, sometimes with different presentations in the same family: a severe form of hereditary spastic paraplegia; a juvenile and slowly progressive ALS; or juvenile Parki...
  • Dr Andrew Patton
    Study of circadian rhythms in the mammalian suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) using genetic and electrophysiological approaches. My primary research focuses on the role of GABAergic synaptic transmission within the SCN and how this contributes to the ...
  • Dr Arkoprovo Paul
    I am investigating functional phenotypes of human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived Neurons, Astrocytes and Microglia generated using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing tools and forward reprogramming technologies. My current research is focuss...
  • 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...
  • Mr Alexander Peattie
    Investigating the role of methylphenidate in improving cognitive function following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Specifically, using fMRI data analysis and functional connectivity to investigate interactions between large scale networks and the m...
  • Polly Peers Dr Polly Peers
    My current work is focused on understanding the relationship between attentional and memory deficits following stroke, and examining whether training of these cognitive functions can improve outcome for patients.
  • Professor Jesus Perez
    My research activity is mainly focused on early detection and intervention in psychosis. I am particularly interested in the epidemiology and psychopathology of people at high-risk of developing psychosis, with psychotic experiences and with first...
  • Dr Juan Jose Perez Moreno
    In neurons, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is not only found in the cell body, but also extends into dendrites and axonal presynaptic terminals. Axonal ER comprises a tubular network of mainly smooth ER, whose function is still poorly understood. In h...
  • Dr Benjamin Perry
    I am a Clinical Lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry, and a Higher Trainee in General Psychiatry in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust. I recently completed an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship in the Department. I'm interes...
  • Dr Luca Peruzzotti-Jametti
    Research in our group is focused on the understanding of inflammation in central nervous system (CNS) diseases. Over the past years, our research in regenerative neuroimmunology led to novel experimental advanced therapeutics with neural stem cell...
  • Dr Tom Pettini
    My research focuses on understanding how experience during a critical period towards the end of embryonic development leads to differences in nerve cell structure and connectivity in later larvae. Our experimental approach is to subject embryos to...
  • Anna Philpott Professor Anna Philpott
    Our laboratory is interested in understanding the coordination of cell proliferation with cell fate determination and differentiation in development, stem cells and reprogramming, focusing particularly on the nervous system (as well as in endocri...
  • Blanca Piera Pi-Sunyer
    I study the role of social connectedness on self-cognitive processing and mental health difficulties in adolescents in the UK and Spain
  • Eva Pillai
    Neurons extend axons across long distances, growing along highly specific 'tracks' to reach their synaptic target in the brain. Most studies of this process have focused on how chemical molecules guide axon navigation accurately. Our lab has shown...
  • Scarlett Pinnock Dr Scarlett Pinnock
    The rate of neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus of the adult hippocampus is highly labile. Much of this lability is due to the exquisite sensitivity of the progenitor cells to glucocorticoids. Glucocorticoids have two principal roles: absolute level...
  • Kate Plaisted Dr Kate Plaisted-Grant
    My research interest in autism was sparked by the fascinating cognitive strengths shown by many individuals with autism. These include exceptional abilities to process fine details, better discrimination abilities compared to typical individuals a...
  • Stefano Pluchino Dr Stefano Pluchino
    Recent evidence from our own laboratory indicates that the systemic injection of somatic neural stem/precursor cells (NPCs) very efficiently protect the CNS from the chronic degeneration induced by inflammation both in small rodents as well as in ...
  • Anujan Poologaindran
    Originally from Toronto (Canada), I am a neuroscientist at Cambridge (UK) working on building a life in academic medicine. My scientific work intersects at functional neurosurgery, behavioural neuroscience, and brain mapping with a special focus ...
  • Dr Jasper Poort
    I want to understand how we selectively process behaviourally relevant visual input. How does the brain turn a constant overflow of sensory information into selective representations of our environment that can optimally guide our actions? Studyin...
  • Brechtje Post Professor Brechtje Post
    My research primarily focuses on speech prosody - intonation, accentuation, rhythm, and phrasing. Prosody simultaneously encodes information from different components of the linguistic system in the speech signal, in particular morpho-syntax, prag...
