Postdoctoral research Opportunities are available to examine the computations that occur at the neural ensemble level leading from plans to action in cortical networks, using multi-area, multielectrode techniques in behaving primates. Experiments involve behavioral neurophysiological methods and the application of novel analytical tools to examine representation and interaction of neuron ensembles at the level of single neurons and field potentials. Research also involves the development of optogenetic methods to evaluate the role of cortical network processing in transforming action goals into reach and grasp movements. The laboratory has state of the art recording technology, including chronic multichannel systems, advanced full-upper limb motion capture and advanced computational facilities. The team works closely with the BrainGate human pilot trial group, with the aim of translating advances in understanding cortical information processing into useful neural interfaces for humans with paralysis. Experience in primate single unit neurophysiology and analysis of multineuron data highly desired. Funding potentially available for up to five years.
