Dr. Achim Klug
Achim has more than 20 years of experience in the auditory brain stem and sound localization circuit. He has used a number of electrophysiological techniques such as in-vivo recordings, patch clamp recordings, manipulations of neural circuits with pharmacology and optogenetics and combines these with behavior and histological analysis.
Dr. Elizabeth McCullagh
Liz explores alterations in the sound localization pathway in autism and Fragile X. She also studies localization mechanisms with optogenetic manipulations of auditory brain stem nuclei.
Alex is a Professional Research Assistant who is an expert at immunohistochemistry, microscopy, neural tracing, and electrophysiology. She works both alterations in the sound localization pathway in aging and in Fragile X.
Shani is a Professional Research Assistant who is an expert at immunohistochemistry, microscopy, and behavioral testing. She works both alterations in the sound localization pathway in aging and in Fragile X.
Jen is a degree seeking honors student at the University of Colorado Denver. She studies synaptic connectivity and spine morphology in Fragile X
Ben-Zheng is an electrical engineering student from the University of Macau and is interested in neural circuit simulation, signal/data analysis, and closed-loop optogenetic control. He is currently working on modeling auditory and olfactory systems using spiking neural networks. Ben is co-advised by Dr. Tim Lei.
Phuong is an Electrical Engineering student interested in robotics and control systems, computer vision and digital image processing. He works on a new stereotaxic device for small animals based on computer vision and robotics which integrates neural targeting with neuronavigation. He is co-advised by Dr. Tim Lei.
