One position for a postdoctoral fellowship has been opened (see details below) in the context of the following project:
Title of the project
In vivo functional characterization of whole brain- and population-level dynamics in genetic mouse models of migraine.
Abstract of the project
Migraine is a remarkably disabling and still poorly understood brain disorder which primarily affects the sensory nervous system. It is characterized by recurrent attacks of unilateral headache and by a global dysfunction in multisensory information processing. Previous investigations at the microcircuit level in genetic models of migraine have revealed significant alterations in the cortical excitatory synaptic transmission due to impaired mechanisms of glutamate release and glutamate clearance.
