Congratulations to Dr. Caleb Wright on his new position in the Data Analytics and Machine Learning arm of Chick-Fil-A. Dr. Wright was an important member of our laboratory since 2017, focused on network dynamics during sensory adaptation. We will miss his science, computational skills, mentoring, and collegiality!! Good luck Caleb!
Congratulations to Dr. Aurelie Pala on her new position as a Research Scientist in the Jaeger Laboratory in the Department of Biology at Emory University. Dr. Pala was a key member of our laboratory since 2015, focused on inter-hemispheric interactions in bilateral sensing. We will miss her science, experimental skills, mentoring, … More Congratulations to Aurelie on her new position!
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has awarded Elaida Dimwamwa and her advisor, Garrett Stanley, the Gilliam Fellowship! The fellowship will support Elaida in her many endeavors, including unlocking the role of corticothalamic feedback on sensory perception as well as advancing diversity and inclusion in science. Elaida’s achievement was featured … More Congratulations Elaida for being selected for the Gilliam Fellowship!
Caleb Wright, a post-doc in the lab, recently presented his current research “Rapid sensory adaptation in the mouse thalamocortical circuit, and the relative contribution of thalamic state” to the Society for Neuroscience virtual conference. In addition, he has been accepted to present a poster at the virtual Cosyne conference in February 2021. Congratulations, Caleb!
Maniya will be using machine learning approaches for behavior tracking. Vivek will be helping us to develop hardware for new behavioral paradigms. Welcome!!!
