Phd position in "Neuromorphic photonic circuits to modulate neuronal excitability in autism and epilepsy"

Investigating the cellular mechanisms controlling neuronal excitability paves the way to develop novel therapeutic opportunities for a number of invalidating brain disorders. The goal of this project is to study in-vitro models of epilepsy using drugs and neuronal networks in vitro and to modulate their electrical activity by using neuromorphic photonic circuits. Neuronal cultures from the brain of mouse models of autism and epilepsy will be grown on neuromorphic photonic circuits and cutting-edge techniques (including optogenetics, confocal microscopy, and multi-electrode array recordings) will be used to investigate the interactions between neurons and photonic circuits.
