BRAIN CIRCUITS FOR AUDITORY PATTER RECOGNITION:
Based on our recent progress the project aims at analysing neural circuits for auditory pattern recognition in brains of insects. The candidate will use a combination of neurophysiology, calcium imaging and behavioural studies to analyse the design and functional principles of identified neurons and neural circuits for auditory pattern recognition.
