Researcher Bio

Dan Wilson joined the Fitzpatrick lab in August 2012 as a PhD student. His research uses optical and electrophysiological techniques to investigate cellular computation in primary visual cortex. In particular, he is interested in understanding the connectivity motifs that support the cellular computations underlying basic properties of cortical neurons such as orientation and direction selectivity.

Research Interests

  • Functional connectivity in primary visual cortex
  • Dendritic computation
  • Structure-function relationships in single neurons and neuronal networks

Education

  • BS, Duke University, Neuroscience (2011)
