Congratulations! Neural Encoding Laboratory member Peter Young Borden was awarded the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship (F-31) for two years of funding! His project titled Thalamic Control of Cortical Sensory Processing During Active Sensing will explore how neural system alter during states of self-motion. In particular, this work will investigate how the thalamo-cortical sensory circuit changes during active sensing in rodents using cutting edges techniques. He will continue his training under the guidance of Dr. Garrett Stanley at Georgia Tech on his path to becoming an independent researcher.
