The anatomy and physiology of the intertidal marine isopod Cirolana harfordi

The intertidal isopod is a remarkably successful scavenger and predator and yet almost nothing is known about its development, anatomy and physiology, so this animal presents a uniq more...

A purpose-built brain imaging scanner for awake, freely moving animals

We recently developed a technology that enables the brain of a small animal to be imaged while the animal is free to move. This opens up a new class of experiments aimed at relating more...

The foraging and behavioural ecology of mammalian herbivores: how they interact with the plants they eat and with the predators that want to eat them

Ecological interactions with mammalian herbivores: the ways in which plant, herbivores and predators respond to one another on an individual basis, and the implications for populati more...

Surface estimation of freely moving animals to enable quantitative neuroimaging

Accurate estimation of the highly non-rigid surface of freely moving animals is necessary to properly quantify data from brain imaging studies in which the animals are allowed to mo more...

Characterising and compensating for partial volume effects in motion-compensated brain imaging of small animals

Partial volume effects resulting from the limited spatial resolution of positron emission tomography (PET) remain a key limitation to accurate quantification of PET image data. This more...
