Dan Wilson joined the Fitzpatrick lab in August 2012 as a PhD student. His research uses cutting-edge optical imaging techniques to investigate functional connectivity and dendritic computations in the primary visual cortex. This work could inform visual neuroscientists and neurophysiologists alike, as it relates the functional properties of a neuron with its synaptic connectivity and dendritic morphology.
