Noninvasive functional neuroimaging tools are widely applied to study
the human brain in action. However, the hemodynamic signals of the most
extensively used method are still not well understood. This joint EPFL
and ETHZ PhD project aims at understanding the quantitative aspects of
hemodynamic changes that occur in the brain. For this aim, novel
multimodal high resolution optical imaging tools will be developed and
applied in animal experiments.
The thesis project (3 years) will consist of the following tasks
1. Development and validation of quantitative spectroscopic optical
2. In-vivo experiments in the rat and data analysis (Zurich).
Applicants should have a strong interest and background in engineering
and/or physics. Experience in animal experiments are not mandatory,
however, the candidate must be open and interested in this part of the
project. Please contact Prof. Dr. Bruno Weber bweber at pharma.unizh.ch or
Prof. Dr. Christian Depeursinge christian.depeursinge at epfl.ch.
