2017BAPFFBDEF261 – PhD position investigating the role of neuromodulation in learning and memory

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy (m/f) in the Department of Biomedical Sciences (Bio-Imaging Lab) under the supervision of Prof. Georgios A. Keliris

PhD position investigating the role of neuromodulation in learning and memory

The goal of the project is to understand the neural mechanisms modulating learning and memory in rats. A multimodal approach and combination of state-of-the-art methods (MRI-imaging, electrophysiology, optogenetics and pharmacogenetics) will be used to uncover both the global network as well as specific cellular mechanisms. This approach will also be employed in animal models of brain diseases involving memory deficits such as Alzheimer’s Disease.
