Our laboratory seeks a Post-Doctoral fellow for our on-going research studies investigating the prefrontal cortex brain structure and physiology of cortical pathways in monkeys. Our lab combines anatomical and viral tracing, with in vivo electrophysiological recordings in anesthetized preparations, optogenetic stimulation, and whole-cell patch-clamp recording in vitro slices, to investigate the cellular and synaptic properties of prefrontal circuits involved in cognitive and emotional control and integration. Preferred expertise include optogenetics, optical methods and imaging of voltage-sensitive dyes, and multiphoton microscopy
Responses (resume and cover letter) should be sent to
