Principal Investigator


Richard Tsien, PhD

The Druckenmiller Professor of Neuroscience, Department of Neuroscience and Physiology
Professor, Department of Neurology

Associate Research Scientist

Israeli Ran
Associate Research Scientist
Dr. Ran is interested in the neural basis for information processing and storage. Particularly, he is interested in mechanisms which coordinate the transfer of signals between the presynaptic and postsynaptic membranes and how these processes optimize circuit function and give rise to short- and long-term memory.
