Investigating the consequences of presynaptic interactions for basal ganglia function


Project Description

We have recently discovered that neurons in the striatum (a nucleus important for motor control and reward processing) interact not only through conventional synapses but also through modulation of “third party” inputs. This project will explore the functional consequences of these interactions using a combination of electrophysiological, pharmacological and computational techniques.

Funding Notes

Requirements: We ask for a good honours degree of 2:1 or above and generally a masters or pending masters (merit or distinction) in Psychology or a related discipline.
