Projects are available on a wide range of topics using a variety of methodological approaches. Here is a selection of masters level projects offered in the Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology in the last 3 years:

  • Decoding real-time referential activation in language comprehension with EEG.
  • Differential effects of brief constant light on serotonergic resetting in aged mice.
  • Alterations in neuronal morphology following interference with the kynurenine pathway.
  • Predicting the emergence of decisions from EEG recordings.
  • Testing the concept of genome editing as a therapeutic intervention in Rett Syndrome.
  • Investigating inputs onto long descending propriospinal neurons in the spinal cord.
  • The role of parietal alpha phase-locking in spatial and temporal anticipation: a TMS Study.
    • The localisation and modulation of MAP2K7/JNK pathway kinases in neurons.
    • The own-age bias in age judgements.
    • Hyperglycemia and cerebral blood flow in experimental stroke.
    • Reactivation of visual short-term memory by transcranial magnetic stimulation.
    • An investigation of receptor expression of respiratory rhythm generating neurons.
    • Do distinctiveness and attractiveness really have independent effects on face recognition?
    • Does minocycline alter the morphology of NG-108 neuronal cells?
    • Relating cortical thickness to autism quotient scores.
    • Biological motion perception in major depressive disorder: a re-analysis of fMRI data.
