I am the first member of the Sherman lab to examine prefrontal cortical circuitry, building upon my discovery of parallel cortico-thalamo-hippocampal pathways [JNeurosci.33(19), 8494-8503]. I was recruited by and collaborate extensively with Dr. Eva Dyer’s computational neuroscience group at the Georgia Institute of Technology (http://dyerlab.gatech.edu/). Our most recent publication reveals how X-ray microtomography is used to reconstruct and quantify large 3D brain maps, complementing current connectomics efforts.
