Cognitive and Translational Neuroscience

From Discovery to Translational Neuroscience

We are based in Newcastle University Biosciences Institute (NUBI), which comprises over >100 active research groups, >200 postdoctoral research associates and >240 PhD students. The NUBI makes use of state-of-the-art neuroscience technology, ranging from single-cell analysis, molecular biology advanced neurophysiological and neuroimaging techniques.

Our lab aims to establish internationally competitive research in neural mechanisms of sensation, perception and particularly auditory cognition with the potential to advance treatments and therapeutic interventions for nervous system disorders to develop links to clinical and neurosurgical patient work, which strongly aligns with the vision of Newcastle University and Newcastle University Centres of Research Excellence (NUCoREs).

Our work is supported by the Medical Research Council (MRC, UK), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC, UK) and the National Institute of Health (NIH, USA). 

MRC Programme Grant support on ‘Neuronal Circuit for Perceptual Inference’

The lab will be supported by a four-year Multiple-PI MRC programme grant on ‘Neuronal Circuit for Perceptual Inference’ from January 2023, £1.8M
