Another New Recruit!
Just over a month after welcoming three new members to CARMEN, we've recruited another one, Jose Luis Vega. Jose has just joined Stuart Baker's group at Newcastle and will be working on WP5. Here he gives us a little information to introduce himself to the Consortium.
Jose completed an M.Sc. in Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience, (September 2007-August 2008), under the supervision of Drs Kevin Gurney and Jim V. Stone at the University of Sheffield. In his previous role, he undertook a four and a half month Post-Doctoral training programme focusing on the theoretical development of a synaptrotopic axon growth mechanism observed in vivo . This role provided him with the opportunity to develop two models explaining the growth of axonal arbors. He developed a statistical code under a stochastic formalism to simulate these processes. (Dr N. Cohen, University of Leeds.), (February 2007-June 2007). Prior to this, Jose studied for, and obtained my Ph.D. in Physics, Statistical Mechanics and Stochastic Processes, at the Spanish National Research Council (C.S.I.C), Madrid. June-2006. My research interests are focused on spike trains of neurons, how the neurons encode and decode the information, as well as developing theoretical models to explain the response of this non linear dynamic.
