Almost all experimental data on neural function is based on animal research; while there are many similarities with human tissue, it is becoming clearer that neurons in the human CNS are considerably more complex structurally and functionally. This unique project involves taking samples of human brain cortex obtained during operations to characterise ionic currents, electrical excitability and drug responsiveness of human neurons
This research project is available to PhD, Masters by Research, Honours, Master of Biomedical Science students to join as part of their thesis.
