The Research Technician is part of a project focused on modeling of the mechanisms of symbolic processing in neural circuits of the neocortex. The main purpose of the position is to program computational models of cortical cognitive function. Develops software for computational modeling of cortical function, and performs analysis of the link between computational models and experimental data from fMRI research and recordings of neurophysiological data. Prepares manuscripts and figures for publication.
