Kuo Lee joined the Fitzpatrick Lab in May 2014 as a PhD student. His research focuses on using multiple optical imaging techniques and reverse correlation methods to investigate the receptive field structure among the developing neural maps in primary visual cortex. This work will refine our knowledge about how the high-level mammalian builds a well-organized cortical circuit to process visual information.
In 2016, Kuo was awarded the Celia Lipton Farris and Victor W. Farris Foundation Ph.D. fellowship. The fellowship is intended to support a Graduate Student within the IMPRS international graduate program.
