Jeff Johnston

Graduate Student in the laboratory of David Freedman

David Freedman, my adviser, has been instrumental in transforming my abstract research goals into a project that is finite, reasonably tractable, and that will hopefully address the core of those goals -- while still encouraging the use of new techniques and experimental paradigms. The series of three theoretical neuroscience courses, taught by Nicolas Brunel and Stephanie Palmer, were also highly influential in my thinking about neuroscience, both generally and as it relates to my project.
