We use a combination of two-photon calcium imaging, head-fixed behavior, optogenetics, and optical cellular resolution perturbation approaches to answer both circuit and behavioral level about cortical function in the mouse. The responsibilities of a laboratory associate include mouse behavioral training, chronic cranial window implant and viral injection surgeries, and maintenance of the mouse colony. Applicants should have a bachelor's degree and be motivated to perform research, and be prepared to make a two-year commitment.
