Edward Saunders

Research Assistant in Auditory Neuroimaging,



Edward Saunders joined the University as a Research Assistant in 2021 immediately following his Postgraduate degree in Computational Neuroscience, Cognition, and AI. This research position focuses on the deterministic tractography of UKBiobank patients, to investigate changes in neuroanatomy associated with the development of tinnitus.

Previously, Edward has undertaken research involving the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids for Parkinson's Disease and Methamphetamine-use associated neurotoxicity, as well as probabilistic tractography in Alzheimer's patients, resulting in a reliable and accurate method to predict the pre-development of Alzheimer's in patients making use of a number of key biomarkers and neuroanatomical changes.
