European Research Council funded fellowship The neural correlates of spatial and temporal integration windows

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project’s overall objective is to understand the construction of the perception of objects and events in space and time. The fellow’s task will be to develop a series of neuroimaging experiments employing unisensory and multisensory stimulation. These experiments will be predominantly performed in the fMRI environment but may also involve neurophysiological measures (EEG/MEG) and eye-tracking. The fellow will carry out advanced analysis of fMRI including functional and effective connectivity. In addition the fellow is expected to collaborate with other members of the CoPeSt team in ongoing behavioural and neuroimaging studies
