Research Opportunity in Visual Neuroscience Lab

Faculty Mentor: Alessandra Angelucci
Title: Professor
College: Medicine
School / Department: Ophthalmology

Project description

Our lab studies visual processing in the cerebral cortex. We are looking for students to work on two projects. One aimed at studying the computational function and connectivity of individual inhibitory neurons in the visual cortex, and the second aimed at understanding organization of cortico-cortical feedback connections. This research is part of the foundational effort to uncover the brain's connectome and thus its function.
