PhD position in cortical inhibitory microcircuits (Paris Brain Institute)


Our research mainly focuses on the cellular physiology of various elements of cortical microcircuits, the properties and plasticity of their synaptic connections and their contribution to the generation of various cognition-relevant network activities. Through our collaborators, we also study cortical circuit deficits in several animal model of brain disease. We use a combination multi-disciplinary approach, with strong expertise in cellular synaptic cortical physiology, optical interrogation approaches coupled to mouse genetics and anatomy. For more information, please refer to our recentpreprint: doi:
