Christopher Tinsley

Senior Lecturer

School of Science & Technology

Staff Group(s)


Dr Chris Tinsley teaches in various aspects of Pharmacology and Neuroscience including Basic Pharmacology, Pharmacokinetics, Clinical Pharmacology, Drug Development, Drug Addiction and Abuse and Cognitive Neuroscience.

Career overview

Chris Tinsley began his research career using quantitative anatomical and behavioural techniques to study the cerebral cortex and received his PhD from Nottingham University (UK). Chris then moved on to his postdoctoral career where he used electrophysiological  and pharmacological methods to study Prefrontal cortex, Visual cortex and Perirhinal cortex at Oxford University (UK), Nottingham University (UK) and  Bristol University (UK). In 2010 Chris moved to take up a lectureship at Nottingham Trent University (UK).

Research areas

Dr Tinsley is interested in the cerebral cortex organisation, brain repair technologies and brain tumour biology. Previously he has studied cortical function using neurophysiological, behavioural and anatomical approaches. Currently Dr Tinsley's research involves the development of cellular implants suitable for delivery to the brain and in the study of brain tumour development and therapeutics.

Opportunities arise to carry out postgraduate research towards an MPhil / PhD in the areas identified above. Further information may be obtained on the NTU Research Degrees website
