PhD Studentship Topic

Projects in Computational Neuroscience

Projects are available in the mathematical modelling and computer simulation of aspects of biological nervous systems. Topics range from studying cellular and subcellular details of single neurons, to the dynamics of information processing in neural microcircuits, to developmental aspects of neurons and the networks they form. Tools of the trade include the NEURON simulation package, serial and parallel simulations (72 node cluster available), MATLAB and standard programming languages such as Java. Specific topics around which projects can be defined include (but are not limited to):

  • Signal integration in pyramidal cells
  • Roles of inhibitory interneurons in neural microcircuits
  • Signal transmission properties of chemical synapses
  • Development of the electrical properties of neurons
  • Development of neuronal morphology
