A postdoctoral associate position that will investigate the multi-regional circuits involved in decision-making. Our group recently discovered identified brain regions in the frontal cortex, basal ganglia, midbrain, thalamus, and the cerebellum form multi-regional loops that are critically involved in cognitive functions such as motor planning and short-term memory. Using the mouse model, the postdoctoral associate will investigate the neural circuit mechanisms of decision-making behaviors in mice. Specific research duties include:
- Use optogenetics and quantitative behaviors to identify cortical and striatal regions involved in decision-making.
- Use electrophysiology and 2-photon imaging to investigate the cortico-striatal circuits during cognitive behaviors.
- Analyze cell types and their contributions to decision-making behavior.
- Analyze behavioral and electrophysiology data.
- Education Required: MD or Ph.D in Basic Science, Health Science, or a related field.
- Experience Required: None Required.
- Certification/Licenses/Registration: None Required.
- PhD in Neuroscience.
- 1 year postdoctoral experience.
