For the communication and agreements between the Netherlands Brain Bank (NBB) and its customers and to initiate and further develop NBB Research Services, we have an opportunity for a business developer.
For an ambitious project to develop a regenerative therapy to restore function in MS we are looking for a post-doctoral fellow to join a current team of 2 PhD students, a post-doctoral fellow and a technician.
The Vision & Cognition group (Roelfsema lab) has an exciting opportunity for a PhD student or Post-doctoral researcher to investigate the logic of feedback connections in mouse visual cortex and their role in perceptual organization.
In this electrophysiological project we will use patch clamp, intracellular electrodes and multielectrode arrays to record responses of retinal neurons and use information theory and linear/non-linear system analysis to determine how and with what efficiency visual information is coded in the outer retina.
For this project the fish are tested in behavioral tasks using optokinetic, startle and optomotor assays. Furthermore, the electrical responses of the eye are evaluated using ERG measurements and the morphology of the retina is studied using morphological techniques.
The group studies the neurobiological basis of reinforcement learning, decision making, and compulsive behavior. We are driven by the question “How do we control our behavior?” and “How do we lose control?”.The student will be involved in one of the projects that are available.
