An enduring challenge in neuroscience is to decipher the cellular basis underlying the functional architecture of the cerebral cortex that processes information and guides intelligent behavior. Despite its immense cellular complexity, certain fundamental aspects of cortical organization (e.g.,... Read More »

Classical models of cerebellar learning posit that climbing fibers operate according to a supervised learning rule to instruct changes in motor output by signaling the occurrence of movement errors. This model is grounded largely in studies of behaviors that utilize hardwired neural pathways to... Read More »

Joe is interested in understanding the neuronal circuits underlying motivated behavior and their dysfunction in mental illness. He investigates electrophysiologic models of synaptic plasticity and dopamine signaling in the rodent basal ganglia. Joe received his BS in chemistry and BA in... Read More »

Bryan Research 103
Jingjing Wang is in the Kay lab. In the central nervous system, billions of neurons interconnect with precision to form morphologically complex and functionally diverse neural circuits. The stereotypical fashion by which neurons assemble suggests that cell-surface molecular cues can act as identity... Read More »
