Janelia Farm Research Campus

Current Position

Dr. Druckmann is a group leader at the Janelia Farm Research Campus.

Current Research

Theoretical Analysis of Neurons, Networks, Their Computation, and How They Subserve Behavior

Shaul Druckmann is interested in elucidating the relationship between behavior and the underlying neuronal circuit structure and neural population dynamics. His lab focuses on understanding the role of network structure and neural identity in shaping neural dynamics and how this activity represents information and performs computations.

Dr. Druckmann received his PhD degree in computational neuroscience from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he worked with his advisor, Idan Segev, on the interaction between single-cell dynamics and network architecture in shaping network activity. He completed postdoctoral work in the lab of Mitya Chklovskii at the Janelia Farm Research Campus, where he studied the relation between structure, function, and dynamics in neural circuits.

In his Janelia lab, Druckmann focuses on understanding how neurons represent and process information, especially in the context of two salient aspects of neural circuit architecture: high dimensional representations and recurrent connections.
