We are offering a competitive graduate studentship for October 2015 entry tenable for three years.

The project will be supervised by Zameel CaderHolly Bridge and Irene Tracey.

This DPhil is linked to funding from ElectroCore, who have developed non-invasive vagal nerve stimulation as a treatment for headache disorders. The post will involve a range of techniques such as cutting edge brain imaging technology including arterial spin labelling and magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The aim is to study an experimental model of migraine and examine changes in brain metabolites and brain function over the course of a migraine attack and at different stages of the migraine cycle. The effect of acute and preventative treatments will also be investigated.
