Summer Project
Supervisor(s): 
Professor Geoffrey Goodhill

Suitable for:  A strong mathematical background and good programming skills are essential.  Prior knowledge of neuroscience is not required.

Project:  With developments in super-resolution microscope technology, it is now possible to image the movement of individual molecules in living neurons.  Interpreting these experiments, however, requires advanced mathematical/computational models and tools.  The student will develop algorithms in Matlab to help understand these data.

Expected outcomes:  Improved algorithms for the analysis of single-molecular imaging experiments.
