POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION: Mechanisms of loss of consciousness under anesthesia

Postdoctoral position available to study how anesthetics cause loss of consciousness. Specifically, we seek to understand how anesthetics alter stimulus coding, audio-visual integration and connectivity in rodent auditory cortex using multichannel elecrophysiological recordings in vivo. Data will be analyzed using current source density analysis, information theoretic analyses, and dynamic causal modeling.

Applicants with experience in in vivo electrophysiology, signal processing and neural modeling are especially encouraged to apply.
