Minsu Yoo is a PhD graduate student in the Committee on Computational Neuroscience.  His research investigates how visual sensory information is transferred through neurological pathways, specifically the direct cortico-cortical pathways between higher and lower cortical areas of the visual systems of mice.  How do direct feed-forward and feedback pathways affect the neural activities in lower and higher cortical areas?  In examining this question, he uses viral and chemogenetic techniques, while observing neuronal modulations using i­n vivo extracellular recording or two photon calcium imaging.  

When Minsu is not in the lab, he enjoys mostly outdoor activities, such as playing soccer, of which he is a long-time player and fan.  He continues to improve his game.
