   Dr Jeff Dalley is a Reader in Molecular and Behavioural Neuroscience and a Fellow and Director of Studies for Neuroscience and Psychology at St Catharine's College. Jeff joined the Cambridge group in 1996 as a post-doc with Trevor Robbins and Barry Everitt after research fellowships with David Nutt in Bristol and Clare Stanford at University College London. He has a long standing interest in the brain monoamine systems and techniques used to measure markers of synaptic and extrasynaptic neurotransmission in limbic cortico-striatal circuitry.
Dr Bianca Jupp's research primarily concerns investigating the neurobiology underlying the behavioural trait of impulsivity and related cognitive endophenotypes and how these confer risk for developing drug abuse and addiction. She is particularly interested in the application of neuroimaging techniques such as MRI and PET, neurochemistry and pharmacogenomic approaches in rodent models of these behaviours to facilitate such studies.
Dr Jing Xia completed her PhD in Plant Sciences at Cambridge University in 2000. Her postgraduate research focused on the localisation of arabinoxylans in the cell wall of wheat kernels using microscopy, histochemistry and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). She joined the Department of Psychology in 2009 where she currently manages the HPLC laboratory.
Mr Colin McKenzie has completed MSc's in Neuroscience at University College London and Cognitive Neuroscience at Durham University, and is the Neurobiology Laboratory Manager in the Department of Psychology. He has been involved in research areas such as the control of neurotransmitter release, synaptic plasticity and the neurological basis of visual behaviour.
