Undergraduate, M.Sc and PhD projects
The Neuronal Oscillations Group offers various exciting projects ranging from multi-photon imaging to computational modelling. If you consider joining the lab for a summer research experience, an undergraduate project or for graduate study please get in touch with Ole Paulsen.
