IRTA Postdoctoral Fellow

Jeong Lee, Ph.D.

I am interested in understanding neural circuits and brain functions in awake, behaving animals using genetically encoded biosensors and optical imaging techniques. I leverage my experiences in electrical engineering and optical systems in developing new tools and techniques for better visualization of the functional neuronal activities. My current project focuses on studying cell-specific neuronal functions and circuit dynamics in basal ganglia and motor cortex associated with motor learning, habit formation, and addictive behavior.
