Work Plan Activities

  • In vivo and in vitro functional dissection of a novel multi-sensory integrator in the medial secondary visual cortex (area Oc2M or V2M);
  • Anatomical characterization of the circuits connecting V1, Au1 with Oc2M, and these with the hippocampus (HIPP);
  • In vitro functional characterization of Oc2M´s local microcircuits, and its electrophysiological responses to optogenetic stimulation of V1 and Au1 terminals;
  • In vivo characterization of Oc2M responses to visual and auditory stimulation, and the role if Oc2M in stimulus-trajectory association tasks;
  • Assist and advise, technically and scientifically, other lab members in their ongoing projects;
  • Develop theoretical models of hippocampal-cortical circuit mechanisms.

Profile of Candidate:

Any National, foreign and stateless candidate(s) that hold the following requirements can apply:

  • PhD in Physics, Biology, Electrical/electronics Engineering, Biotechniology or akin areas;
  • Experience in in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology recordings in the rodent brain, evidenced by relevant publications in high-impact, international, peer-reviewed journals;
  • Solid knowledge of engineering applied to data acquisition, computation, and computational statistics applied to neurophysiology data analysis, evidenced by relevant publications in high-impact, international, peer-reviewed journals;
  • Experience with neuronal manipulation tools (optogenetics and pharmaco-genetics);
