Post-doctoral position, Paris: neural monitoring of visceral inputs and emotions

      A post-doctoral position is open to study the link between emotions and the neural monitoring of visceral inputs. This project is part of a broader ERC project testing thehypothesis that the neural monitoring of visceral inputs (heart, stomach) generates a subject-centered reference frame, from which first-person perspective can develop, in perception, cognition and emotion.

    Motivated candidates with an excellent academic record in affective neuroscience and good programming abilities are welcome to apply. Knowledge of, and/or experience with, brain imaging and physiological recordings would be a strong plus. The position is initially funded for two years, beginning in January 2018 (flexible). The successful candidate will benefit from the interdisciplinary environment and computing resources of the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, Department of Cognitive Science at Ecole Normale Supérieure in central Paris, as well as from the state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility (MEG, fMRI, TMS, intracranial EEG) at nearby Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière.

    Informal enquiries and formal applications (CV, motivation letter and contact details of at least 2 references) should be sent to catherine.tallon-baudry@ens.fr. The position is open until filled.

Can Advanced Heart failure be reversed? Yes, it can be

Heart failure is one of the most dangerous and commonly found diseases in the world affecting more than 26 million people. Heart failure could be alarming because it not only affects the Heart but also most of the other organs too due to the insufficient supply of Oxygen and other vital nutrients. There are several factors such as obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stress, hereditary causing Heart attack.  On the other side, there are several methods of treatment available through both Transplantation and Implantation. However, there is at least a small amount of discomfort or unreliability prevailing with most techniques [4 &5].

Research Positions in Neuroscience

The Neuroelectromagnetic Oscillations (NEMO) Lab, directed by Sarang Dalal and recently relocated to Aarhus University (Denmark), is recruiting postdocs and PhD students for a large ERC-funded project.

The ERC project will examine in detail how neural oscillations communicate information between the retina and cerebral cortex in humans, during presentation of various types of visual stimuli as well as during rest. This will involve several recording techniques, primarily magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroretinography (ERG), with some components involving scalp EEG, intracranial EEG in epilepsy patients, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
