求人ID : D121010073
Laboratory for Neural Circuits and Behavior, Center for Brain Science (Laboratory head：Andrea Benucci)
Neuroscience, visual perception, decision-making, optical imaging, optogenetics, artificial neural networks
Our lab studies the neural basis of visual perception in mice trained to perform in behavioral tasks.
Using a combination of electrophysiological, fluorescence imaging, and optogenetic tools, we aim to understand how activations of population of neurons in the visual cortex give rise to a visual percept.
