We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to conduct basic research into neuromodulatory (locus coeruleus) computation in mice, by utilizing a multimodal virtual reality system alongside in vivo electrophysiology, fibre photometry, and optogenetics.
You will conduct research aimed at investigating prediction error responses and computation performed by the locus coeruleus in behaving mice. This will involve developing a novel multimodal virtual reality system for presenting and combining sensorimotor mismatch stimuli, and using fibre photometry and electrophysiology to record from the locus coeruleus. You will go on to use electrophysiology and/or widefield imaging, as well as optogenetics to interrogate the contribution of cortical activity to locus coeruleus computation.
