Christopher Thomas

Postgraduate Student

DPhil student - Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP

I joined the Vyazovskiy group as a DPhil student through the BBSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership in Interdisciplinary Bioscience, following my studies of BA Natural Sciences (Neuroscience) at the University of Cambridge and MSc Cognitive Science (Neural Computation & Neuroinformatics) at the University of Edinburgh.

My doctoral research project involvesthe use of quantitative modelling and analysis of of spiking and local field potential data recorded in vivo from mouse cortex. I aim to describe how homeostatic sleep need changes on a single neurone level over time as a function of specific neuronal activities, and further to compare this process in different neuronal types.
