Nishant will investigate how the behavior of single neurons contributes to network-level computation and information transfer. He will study single neurons under the effect of different neuromodulators such as Dopamine or Serotonin, in vitro, by analyzing electrophysiological recordings, and try to create neuron models which could reproduce the non-linear dynamic observed in the recordings.
PI: Fleur Zeldenrust
Nishant plays an active role in the organisation of the yearly events of the Nederlandse Hersenolympiade.
Enrolment in Doctoral degree(s): Nishant is enrolled in the Donders Graduate School, Radboud University.
