The lab of Experimental Functional Neurosurgery is part of the Research Group of Experimental Neurosurgery and Neuroanatomy.
In this Research Group, neurosurgeons from University Hospitals Leuven, who are appointed as a professor at KU Leuven, perform their research.
Four researchers from KU Leuven and IMEC closely work together, each with their own PhD-students. Your task within that team will be to setup a rodent stroke model, and develop a strategy to electrically stimulate and record from well-defined brain areas in order to decrease stroke symptoms.
For that purpose you will test novel flexible active electrode systems, developed by the rest of the team. Your creative input for this translational research and hard work are essential.
You are able to finish a PhD in time.
