Thesis Title Cellular calcium signalling in neuroscience
Thesis Abstract This project will explore the effect of calcium signalling on motor function. We will first look at store operated calcium entry in cells and develop mathematical models to describe the calcium dynamics. We will extend our models to investigate the effect of calcium dynamics on the firing patterns of purkinje neurons to understand their impact on the generation of action potentials and the consequences for motor function.
