  • Dr Denise Walker
    Senior Scientist, Bill Schaferís lab, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. A key focus of my research is the molecular and circuit basis of mechanosensation; the molecules responsible (innexins, degenerin/epithelial Na+ channels (DEG/ENaCs)) and p...
  • Ms Ellen Wall
    The hypothalamus is a structure in the brain which is responsible for the regulation of vital physiological systems, the reproductive system being one of these. It does this by releasing gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) in a pulsatile manner...
  • Miss Natalie Wallis
    I study the genetics basis of obesity, with focus on neuroendocrine genes. This offers the chance to better understand the mechanisms of appetite control and energy balance in the CNS. My primary model for the genetics of obesity is canine subject...
  • Mr Yizhou Wan
    High-grade glioma is the most common primary brain cancer. Cognitive symptoms are the commonest neurological deficits reported by patients. They have a significant impact on quality of life and reduce survival. Cognition depends on brain network f...
  • Jieni Wang

  • Dr Mengxin Wang
    We are currently using high-field, laminar imaging techniques to investigate mechanisms of visual plasticity.
  • Elizabeth Warburton Dr Elizabeth Warburton
    Research interests are as follows 1. Molecular imaging of atheroma - particularly carotid plaque imaging using PET/CT and MRI techniques. Both Clinical and microPET imaging. Proof of principle trials of novel atheroma drugs with imaging biomarker...
  • Dr Varun Warrier
    My team works on social and genetic factors that influence neurodevelopment, and mental health. We have a particular interest in investigating heterogeneity in outcomes to develop targeted support and therapy for those who need it. This publicat...
  • Mr Yiran Wei
    Interested in network neurosciences research and deep learning modelling on brain tumour patients
  • Dr Adrian Weller
    Machine Learning
  • Miss Margaret Westwater
    My primary scientific aim is to examine the interaction between peripheral metabolic signaling and neural activity in individuals with healthy and disordered eating behaviors. This work involves measurement of metabolic functioning (e.g., body com...
  • Simon White Dr Simon White
    Developing methodology to address issues when applying Bayesian longitudinal modelling with missing data, Bayesian sample size and study design, or large scale simulation studies to applications in neuroimaging, cognition and ageing.
  • Joyce Whittington Dr Joyce Whittington
    Early research on specific learning disabilities - dyslexia - and associated cognitve deficits. For the last 10 years research has focussed on various prevalence, cognitive and behavioural aspects of Prader-Willi syndrome. Most of the latter is d...
  • Alex Whitworth Dr Alex Whitworth
    My lab is interested in understanding the mechanisms of mitochondrial homeostasis in relation to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and motor neuron disease. We use a combination of the powerful genetic techniques of Drosophila...
  • Ian Wilkinson Dr Ian Wilkinson
    My research is clinically orientated and centres on the physiology and pharmacology of the cardiovascular system, and particularly the large arteries and endothelial function. As a clinical pharmacologist, I combine detailed physiological measure...
  • Paul Wilkinson Dr Paul Wilkinson
    Until December 2020, Paul Wilkinson is University Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge. His main research interests are the epidemiology and treatment of self-harm and depressi...
  • Professor Guy Williams
    Our groupís research interests lie broadly in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). This phenomenon allows data to be collected noninvasively on both the structure and function of the human brain. We research novel acquisition methods to provide contr...
  • Caroline Williams-Gray Dr Caroline Williams-Gray MRCP PhD
    My research aims to better define the clinical heterogeneity of Parkinsonís disease and to understand the neurobiological basis of this, with the ultimate goal of developing more targeted therapeutic strategies for different PD subtypes. Using epi...
  • Ben Williges
    Dr Ben Williges is a Hearing Technology and Audiological Engineer. He is currently working on measuring cortical responses in adults with Cochlear implants (CIs), in order to develop objective measures to help understand sound transmission through...
  • Ms Livia Wilod Versprille
    My research is to investigate the effect of dopamine on attention and cognitive flexibility by testing behavioural constructs in rodents.
  • Dr Emma Rachel Wilson
    My particular interests lie in molecular neuroscience and diseases of the peripheral nervous system. I completed my PhD in Neuroscience at University College London, under the supervision of Prof. Linda Greensmith, Prof. Mary M. Reilly and Dr. Be...
  • Ian Winter
    Primitive neural mechanisms of auditory scene analysis. My research searches for neurophysiological correlates of the cues necessary for the segregation and fusion of auditory objects. This work is carried out in close collaboration with psychop...
  • Stefan Winzeck Stefan Winzeck
    As part of the CENTER-TBI project, I am working on the analysis of magnetic resonance images of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). My research interest focuses on the incorporation of data from multiple centres as well as the examination of disease p...
  • Dr Noham Wolpe
    I am a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Psychiatry. My broad interest is in the interplay between cognition and action in humans. More specifically, my previous work has been on volition, perception of action and cognitive contributions to m...
  • Daniel Wolpert Professor Daniel Wolpert FMedSci FRS
    The group uses engineering approaches to understand how the human brain controls movement. The work includes both computational modelling and experimental approaches using robotic and virtual reality interfaces. Research areas include motor planni...
