Corticothalamic layer V cell in primary somatosensory cortex projecting to auditory thalamus

Labelled using anterograde transynaptic delivery of AAV1-cre injected into posterior medial nucleus of thalamus combined with cre-dependent retrograde expression of Jaws-GFP from auditory thalamus

Cross-modal and auditory processing in thalamic and cortico-thalamic circuits

I am a Wellcome Trust doctoral student in neuroscience. I study the thalamic and cortico-thalamic circuitry allowing for cross-modal interactions and contextual processing in the mouse, using in vivo calcium imaging, in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, and anatomical tracing. I am jointly supervised by Professor Andrew King, Professor Edward Mann and Professor Victoria Bajo.

I did my undergraduate degree in psychology at University of Aalborg, and my master's degree in neuroscience at University of Oxford, as part of the Wellcome Trust doctoral programme. Before I started my current program I worked at MRC cognition and brain sciences unit in Cambridge, doing experimental work on, and modelling, the neural basis of high level vision, such as motion and face perception, using fMRI and MEG.
