The three crises of globalisation: 
An anthropological history of the early 21st century
ID: 295843
Start date: 2012-07-01, End date: 2017-12-31
The research literature on various dimensions of globalisation is enormous, yet this project constitutes the first major attempt to weave disparate empirical strands together within a shared conceptual framework, namely that of crises resulting from the acceleration and inten...

Function of Chemosensory Circuits
[PROJECT] CHEMOSENSORYCIRCUITS - Function of Chemosensory Circuits
ID: 335561
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2019-03-31
Smell and taste are the least studied of all senses. Very little is known about chemosensory information processing beyond the level of receptor neurons. Every morning we enjoy our coffee thanks to our brains ability to combine and process multiple sensory modalities. Meanwhi...

High-speed chip-based nanoscopy to discover real-time sub-cellular dynamics
ID: 336716
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
Optical nanoscopy has given a glimpse of the impact it may have on medical care in the future. Slow imaging speed and the complexity of the current nanoscope limits its use for living cells. The imaging speed is limited by the bulk optics that is used in present nanoscopy. In...

The Macroeconomics of Inequality, Development and the Welfare State
ID: 324085
Start date: 2013-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
This project will develop macro models with heterogeneity across people and firms to understand the consequences of two profound macro trends: the economic transformation of China and the rising cross-sectional inequality in many countries. The ultimate aim is to help these m...

Cortical maps for space
[PROJECT] GRIDCODE - Cortical maps for space
ID: 338865
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2019-05-31
The ultimate goal of neuroscience is to understand the neural basis of subjective experience and behaviour. With our discovery of grid cells as the brain´s metric for space in 2005, spatial navigation became one of the first non-sensory ‘cognitive’ functions of the brain to b...

Neural mechanisms for memory retrieval
ID: 268598
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Memory is one of the most extraordinary phenomena in biology. The mammalian brain stores billions of bits of information but the most remarkable property of memory is perhaps not its capacity but the speed at which the correct information can be retrieved from a pool of thous...

Deconstructing action planning and action observation in parietal circuits in rats
ID: 335328
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
The posterior parietal cortex (PPC) mediates cognitive motor functions including motor planning and action understanding. The latter process is thought to occur via ‘mirror’ neurons, which fire both when an animal performs an action and when it observes a cohort performing th...

Ab-initio adiabatic-connection curves for density-functional analysis and construction
ID: 267683
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2016-02-29
Quantum chemistry provides two approaches to molecular electronic-structure calculations: the systematically refinable but expensive many-body wave-function methods and the inexpensive but not systematically refinable Kohn Sham method of density-functional theory (DFT). The a...

Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
Plate tectonics characterises the complex and dynamic evolution of the outer shell of the Earth in terms of rigid plates. These tectonic plates overlie and interact with the Earth's mantle, which is slowly convecting owing to energy released by the decay of radioactive nuclid...

The anisotropic universe -- a reality or fluke?
[PROJECT] ANISOTROPIC UNIVERSE - The anisotropic universe -- a reality or fluke?
ID: 257080
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
"During the last decade, a strikingly successful cosmological concordance model has been established. With only six free parameters, nearly all observables, comprising millions of data points, may be fitted with outstanding precision. However, in this beautiful picture a few ...
