Functional characterisation of spontaneously opening GABAA receptors

‘The BNA is the organisation that brings together people from different disciplines who wouldn’t otherwise talk to each other.’Professor Dame Uta Frith, UCL – winner of the BNA’s ‘Outstanding Contribution to Neuroscience Award’, 2013. Functional characterisation of spontaneously opening GABAA receptors Closing date: 01 Dec 2015 Salary: Address: University of Edinburgh Duration: 3 years A 3 year PhD studentship is available in the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences on a research project focusing on the research of newly discovered receptor subtype playing important role in neural signalling. In this project, acute neural tissue (brain slices) and cultured neurons will be used to investigate the effects of receptors with different action mechanism on electrophysiolocal response at different levels (single-receptor, whole-cell, neural network). In-vitro patch-clamp of various modes and field recordings will…
