Pyramidal Cell

Don Image What am I doing figure-heading this lab? The path has been a winding one. An undergraduate degree in Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences at Brown was followed by a brief stint as a psycholinguist at the Boston Aphasia Research Center, and then by graduate work as a clinical psychologist at Indiana University. There I discovered the Neurobiology of Learning & Memory. My dissertation concerned cerebellar interactions during eyeblink conditioning, which awakened me to the potential value of multi-site recording technology. I went to Duke University Medical School to do a post-doc with Miguel Nicolelis and Sid Simon, which allowed me to apply this technology, first to the somatosensory and then the gustatory system. It is this last work that I have brought to Brandeis.
