Pharmacology
audience:
Faculty Students
details:
Hosted by Julius Zhu and the Neurosciences Graduate Program Seminar Series, Yiyang Gong is an Associate Professor, Biomedical Engineering, Duke University

Research Interests:

Recording and understanding brain activity by developing novel combinations of optical microscopy and genetically encoded sensors. Using these technologies to dissect neural circuit function and investigate how neural activity drives complex behaviors.

Lab focus:

Understanding brain function using the combination of genetically encoded sensors and optical techniques. Using genetically encoded tools, we can target specific neuron types or specific projection pathways for recording or perturbation. Using optical microscopy, we can access individual neurons with high spatial and temporal accuracy. By employing and developing tools in both categories, we study brain circuitry by recording, perturbing, and controlling brain activity in various preparations.
