A postdoctoral/research associate position is available to study the
role of the visual thalamus using awake behaving monkeys as a model.
The experiments specifically test whether the neuronal activity in
lateral geniculate nucleus is modulated in relation to behavioral
demands including attention, memory, reward or input from other
modalities including audition. The student joining the laboratory also
will have the opportunity to participate in other ongoing experiments
designed to understand how parallel LGN pathways in primates contribute
to the properties of primary visual cortex and its extrastriate targets
using a combination of techniques including optical imaging, fMRI
multielectrode recording and confocal microscopy. The Casagrande
laboratory has active collaborations with the Bonds, Schall, Rossi and
Kaas laboratories. Vanderbilt University has a well known and active
Vision Center (VVRC)(http://vision-research.vanderbilt.edu/
<http://vision-research.vanderbilt.edu/> )  and a strong Cognitive and
Integrative Neuroscience Center (CICN) (http://cicn.vanderbilt.edu/
<http://cicn.vanderbilt.edu/> ). Applicants must be U.S. citizens or
permanent residents. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
Vanderbilt University is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Please send
curriculum vitae, the names of three references, and a description of
research interests to:
