Researcher Bio

Wonchan joined the Kwon lab as a postdoctoral fellow in April 2014. During the last 5 years of graduate studies in the laboratory of Dr. Karen Zito at the UC Davis Center for Neuroscience, he studied activity-dependent mechanisms of synapse-specific structural plasticity in hippocampal neurons. Here at the MPFI, he is excited to further focus on the mechanisms of cortical synaptic and circuit dynamics in vitro and in vivo using neurophysiological, behavioral, and optical imaging techniques. His research continues to understand how the brain integrates experiences and fine-tunes neural networks.
