ABOUT THE LAB: Our lab works on understanding learning and memory sleep/wake circuits and how they are altered by neuropsychiatric disorders. To achieve these goals, we combine human single neuron recordings from patients, in vivo and slice rodent electrophysiology, optogenetics, multiphoton imaging, and intensive development of new analytical and computational neuroscience tools. We use this careful understanding of circuits to build novel translational therapeutics.

JOINING THE LAB: While the lab has been lucky enough to recruit a talented team of outstanding postdocs, graduate students and technicians, we are now looking for additional, exceptional postdoctoral fellows. The ideal candidates will have experience with 2-photon imaging, whole-cell physiology and/or in vivo behavioral and sleep electrophysiology. If you are interested in collaboratively understanding the circuits involved in learning and memory and how they are altered in neuropsychiatric disorders, then feel free to get in touch with me at ojahmed AT umich.edu .
