Ultra-high field subcortical imaging of human decision making and learning (Supervisors: Dr Marios Philiastides and Prof Philippe Schyns)

Advanced MRI of neurovascular disease using parallel-transmit technology at 7 tesla (Supervisors: Dr Shajan Gunamony, Prof David Porter and Prof Keith Muir)

Brain plasticity in later life: Enhancing brain connectivity with fMRI Neurofeedback to improve ageing-related motor deficits (Supervisors: Dr Cassandra Sampaio Baptista and Dr Jozien Goense)

Development of a novel MRI based metabolic imaging method (Supervisors: Dr William Holmes and Dr Rosario Lopez Gonzalez)

Investigation of plasticity of cortical networks after nerve injury using laminar fMRI (Supervisors: Dr Jozien Goense, Dr John Riddell and Prof Andrew Hart)

Mechanisms of inter-areal communication supporting signal transmission and cognition in the human brain (Supervisors: Prof Gregor Thut and Prof Satu Palva)

Stable perception of external stimuli over time: oculo-motor and visual processing mechanisms (Supervisors: Dr Alessio Fracasso and Prof Lars Muckli)

Using EEG Brain-Computer Interaction to Improve Performance (Supervisors: Dr Martin Lages and Dr Marios Philiastides)
