The overall goal of this PhD thesis will be to understand the neuronal mechanisms underlying the learning of vocalizations. We are using the zebra finch as a model system because, just like we learn our language, songbirds learn their song. Within the first 90 days post hatching zebra finches listen to their father and try to copy his song. In our lab we are interested in understanding how single neurons process sensory stimuli, store information and eventually produce motor signals in order to produce the song. Assignment:• Graduate student joining the project:”Neural mechanisms underlying song learning in zebra finches“• We are looking for a talented, creative and motivated candidate who is interested in working multidisciplinary. Condition of employment:• Degree in Cognitive Sciences, Biology, Biophysics, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics or similar Desired:• Interest in…
