    A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ron Frostig. The research focus of this position is on extracellular electrophysiological recordings from the cerebral cortex using microelectrode arrays. Such recordings are part of a pre-clinical research project in a rodent model regarding the protection of cortex from an impending ischemic stroke. The electrophysiological study is part of multi-disciplinary Systems Neuroscience approach including high-resolution functional imaging techniques, blood flow imaging techniques, pharmacological interventions, behavioral tests, and histological studies. Some of the projects involve collaborations with researchers at UCI's Beckman Laser Institute and at UCI's Cognitive Science Department.

    Dr. Frostig's laboratory is located in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior at McGaugh Hall on UCI campus and is part of a rich and diversified Neuroscience research environment at UCI.
