Special Guest Speaker
Jones Parker, PhD
Deciphering the Neural Ensemble Signatures of Disease with Striatal Ca2+ Imaging

Dr. Parker uses calcium imaging to determine how neural network dynamics are disrupted in neurological and psychiatric diseases. Specifically, he uses this technique to evaluate neural ensemble signatures of neuropsychiatric disease, and to observe projection-specific neural activity towards understanding the circuit basis of mental illness. Dr. Parker completed his postdoctoral training with Dr. Michael Ehlers as part of the Pfizer Global R&D Neuroscience and Pain Research Unit, and is currently a Research Associate in Dr. Mark Schnitzer’s lab in Stanford’s Department of Biology.
