Doreen Rhee is a graduate student in the Committee of Neurobiology. 

For my PhD thesis I am pursuing a series of experiments to define the functional contribution of a neural circuit linking primary visual cortex and higher order visual areas through thalamus in mouse.  We hypothesize that transthalamic neural pathways play a significant role in cortical processing.  

For my project I have developed and employ in vivo extracellular physiology, wide-field functional imaging, traditional and viral tracing methods, and chemogenetics.
