Description of the practical laboratory work
Contact data of possible references
A mechanistic understanding of brain organisation and function is the first step in conquering brain diseases. Are you motivated to work towards this goal from a multi-disciplinary perspective? While molecular and cellular neurobiologists determine the machinery that is responsible for creating neural circuits, systems and network biologists shed light on how the coordinated actions of neurons lead to cognition and behaviour.
