The lab is seeking highly motivated and industrious persons to fill several key positions.
A technical position is available for a computer programmer interested in developing systems for real-time dynamic (closed-loop) control of neuroscience experiments involving 3D visualizations. Demonstrated previous experience with OpenGL and the software/hardware requirements of real-time control with millisecond precision is highly desired.
We are looking for graduate students with undergraduate or master’s level training in the sciences or engineering. Interested students can contact me and apply to the following Ph.D. programs:
Postdoctoral positions are also available. Individuals with experience in multi-electrode neural recordings and/or fMRI in behaving animals are particularly encouraged to apply.
How do we perceive the three-dimensional (3D) structure of the world when our eyes only sense 2D projections like a movie on a screen?
Our visual system first encodes the environment in egocentric coordinates defined by our eyes. Such representations are inherently unstable in that they shift and rotate as we move our eyes or head.
Neuro-computational underpinnings of autism
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) manifests heterogeneously across individuals. We study the neural basis of this heterogeneity using multifaceted approaches including learning studies with adolescents, neural imaging, and computational modeling.
Real-time Experimental Control with Graphical User Interface
The Real-Time Experimental Control with Graphical User Interface (REC-GUI) framework is an open-source network-based parallel processing solution for performing behavioral control, high precision stimulus presentation, and high-density neurophysiological measurements.
