Zebrafish Systems Neuroscience: Whole-Brain Analysis of Neural Circuits Underlying Learned Visuomotor Transformations
Misha Ahrens uses zebrafish to study how the brain learns and controls behavior.
Misha Ahrens is a lab head at the Janelia Farm Research Campus researching systems neuroscience in zebrafish, with a focus on the role of cerebellar circuitry in driving adaptable behaviors. He completed his BA in mathematics at Cambridge University and his PhD in computational neuroscience at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, at the University College London. Since 2009 Ahrens has been a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University.
