PhD studentship at Stirling: Can we identify neural signatures of dementia early on?

Can we identify neural signatures of dementia early on?

There is much progress to be made in the early diagnosis of dementia. Dementia is a global challenge (e.g. a relatively high percentage of HIV infected individuals get the disease) and creative application of the knowledge and understanding from Cognitive Neuroscience may help to develop early diagnosis for example. How motor processes and perception map onto the development of dementia is relatively unexplored. At Stirling we have pioneered new approaches to identifying the neural signature of behaviour and cognitive processes while people walk around and interact with the real world. This PhD project is for a candidate who enjoys tackling new neuroscience insight in its full complexity and who relishes the technical challenges to do with monitoring neural processes in the real world using a range of brain technologies in new and innovative ways.
