To this end, the group uses electrophysiology (hdEEG, ERP, ECoG, LFP, and unit recordings) in humans and rodents in different states and levels of consciousness (wake, sleep, anesthesia, etc.), supplemented by patch clamp recordings in vivo and in vitro (rodent and human brain slices), and computational modelling.

The successful applicant for this postdoc position will work on consciousness research in humans, using mainly EEG, TMS, and MRI, and advanced analysis tools. The position is for 2 years and the start date should be between February and June 2019.
