Postdoc/ PhD position: visual perception in mice in the Roelfsema

Project in visual perception in mice in the Roelfsema/Levelt labs A post-doc or PhD-student position is available in the Vision & Cognition/ Molecular Visual Plasticity groups at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience in Amsterdam. This project is funded by a Human Brain Project grant.   Feedforward and feedback processing for visual perception We know from our previous work (Poort et al. Neuron, 2012; Self et al., PNAS 2012; Self et al., Curr. Biol. 2013) that feedback connections are crucial for the conscious perception of a figure on a background. Leveraging on the new methods for cell-specific in vivo two-photon imaging (van Versendaal et al. Neuron, 2012), wide field imaging and optogenetics (Saiepour et al, Curr.
