Charit,Ai(Bplatz 1
D-10117 Berlin, Germany

The Berlin NeuroImaging Center (BNIC) is a young and dynamic lab that
implements interdisciplinary innovative research pertinent to various
themes of neuroscience.

Research group:

   The position is directly related to the project $B!H(Badaptive attention
   mechanisms in conflict processing$B!I(B. The position is available in the
   Vision and Motor Systems Research Group led by PD Dr. Stephan A. Brandt
   and is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in
   collaboration with the Institute of Psychology of the Humboldt

   for Human Development in the DFG funded Forschergruppe $B!H(Bconflicts as
   signals in cognitive systems$B!I(B.


Research topics:

   The goal of this project is to implement and investigate dynamic causal
   models (DCM) of brain areas involved in attentional mechanisms during
   conflict processing. The model will be developed in collaboration with
   the Institute for Theoretical Biology and Bernstein Center for
   Computational Neuroscience Berlin (Dr. Laurenz Wiskott &
   Prof. Dr. John-Dylan Haynes).





   The position will be available as of December 2006. The starting date is
   negotiable. The appointment will be for 1 + 2 years.
