Fundamental computations underlying brain function

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Supervisor – Professor Stephen

We use advanced electrophysiological and imaging techniques to explore the fundamental computations underlying brain function - our work is focussed on the rodent and human neocortex.
