The project part of the PhD position comprises electrical stimulation in the mouse brain combined with cutting-edge (optogenetic) voltage-sensitive dye imaging techniques (Knöpfel Lab, Imperial College London). The aim of our international consortium (Switzerland, Canada, and Germany) is to improve the ability of cortical prostheses to 'mimic' the language of the brain and increase the safety and longevity of visual prosthetic devices.
