Neuronal oscillations and epilepsy research group
What We Do
We use a variety of electrophysiological approaches to study the mechanisms by which neuronal microcircuits generate organised electrical activity in the brain.
Our research is focused on understanding the basis of neurological and psychiatric disease at the level of the neuronal microcircuit and in particular in the context of physiological and pathological electrical activity generated by the brain in certain disease states.
About the Cunningham Laboratory
We are located in the Discipline of Physiology in the School of Medicine. Our labs and office space are situated on the beautiful and historic main Trinity College Dublin campus site. The labs are equipped with state of the art equipment to undertake biochemical, pharmacological, electrophysiological and imaging studies at the in vitro level. We are a lively, social and friendly research group and hold annual lab away days.
We welcome approaches from prospective post-doctoral researchers and PhD students. We also welcome approaches from Non-TCD undergraduate students who may apply for laboratory placements or summer fellowships through sources such as Erasmus.
