Philip Vassilev Postdoctoral Fellow

B.Sc. & PhD – Psychology, University of Sussex

I completed my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Aldo Badiani, and my thesis described a series of experiments looking at the neuronal populations activated by heroin and cocaine in brain areas involved in drug addiction. I have a background in psychology, but I am also fascinated with the way biological mechanisms control behaviour which is one of the reasons why I joined the lab of Cecilia Flores. I am most interested in how neuronal activity relates to behaviour.
