The multidisciplinary project is funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant and encompasses in vivo electrophysiology and optogenetics, behavioral and pharmacological investigation. We offer state-of-the-art facilities and a stimulating scientific environment in a dynamic, young and interdisciplinary team. We guarantee extensive and individual training.
