The Cognitive Neurology Laboratory at the University of Iowa, directed by Dr. Jan R. Wessel, Ph.D., is looking for a post-doctoral researcher effective immediately. The lab studies cognitive control in humans, and is especially interested in the processing of errors / unexpected events and their effects on behavior and cognition.

The lab is equipped with two TMS/fMRI compatible EEG systems, an rTMS system, and a dual-pulse TMS system for motor system probes (SICI, LICI, MEP). Furthermore, the we collaborate with the Neurosurgery Department at the University of Iowa on intrasurgical recordings, and have scanning time in the on-site 3T/7T human fMRI facility.
