Title: In vivo characterization of multimodal microdevices for infrared neural stimulation (Z. Fekete, I. Ulbert)
Description: The candidate will design and test an application specific multimodal microdevice, which is able to thermally excite neuronal population without cross-talk between thermal actuator (integrated infrared waveguide) and electrical recording. He/she will perform systematic stimulation experiments in combination with immunohistology to determine the parameter space of safe in vivo operation in rodents. Using a multimodal neuroimaging scheme, the effect of the microdevice induced infrared neural stimulation method on cortical connectivity will be investigated in combination with recording electrocorticograms of high spatial resolution. The microfabrication and neurosurgery background will be provided by the Centre for Energy Research and Pázmány Péter Catholic University, respectively.
Applications along with a CV are accepted on a continuous basis.
