Neuroscience PhD studentship: the neural circuits of movement
Dr M Zwart
21 December 2018
How do animals interact with their environment? In the Zwart lab we focus on how the brain produces the range of movements required for behaviour in the larval zebrafish and fruit fly Drosophila, deciphering how their neural networks specify the appropriate neural activity for each motion.

Dr W NORTON, Dr J McCutcheon
Applications accepted all year round
The neurotransmitter dopamine has an important role in the vertebrate brain, modulating behaviours that include locomotion, aggression, feeding and reward.
