Ph.D. position: Study of neural plasticity and cortical reorganization following visual system injury
A graduate student position has opened up at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tuebingen, Germany. The project in question focuses on the study of neural plasticity and cortical reorganization following visual system injury. State of the art functional magnetic resonance imaging methods will be used to study a cohort of carefully selected patients with lesions of the visual pathway. The opportunity exists to run a parallel comparative study in non-human primates. This project is under the joint supervision of Drs Nikos K. Logothetis (MPI for Biological Cybernetics) and Stelios Smirnakis (Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, USA).
