The Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology (CEBSIT, http://english.cebsit.cas.cn/) formerly known as the Institute of Neuroscience (ION)is a cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional organization that aims to consolidate existing research strength of CAS laboratories via the formation of collaborative research teams. These teams will address major frontier questions in brain science as well as in intelligence technology that involves brain-inspired computing methods and devices. The newly established International Center for Primate Brain Research (ICPBR) is affiliated to the CEBSIT, aims to be one of the world-class brain research institution.
Alab manager and assistant position is open in the Dynamic Embodied Brain Laboratory (DEB Lab)at ICBPR, led bythe principal investigator (PI) Dr. HenryEvrard. The DEB Lab examines the relations between bodily functions (e.g., heart rate) and brain functions (e.g., emotions) at the neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, and neuroimaging levels. These relations are of paramount importance for our daily affective and cognitive life, for our sense of self and well-being, and for our mental health. The DEB Lab is internationally active and connected, with research being conducted both at the ICPBR as well as in collaborating centers in Europe and the USA. The DEB Lab is currently recruiting both Chinese and non-Chinese team members, aiming at creating a very active, cohesive and harmonious international team.
