James Benton Ackman, PhD

Visiting Research Scientist in Neuroscience


My research is concerned with understanding the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that control neural circuit formation. Currently, I'm interested in describing the cooperative and competitive interactions that impact structural and physiological plasticity in developing neuronal networks. Further insight into the dynamics of circuit connectivity that shape functional networks will advance our understanding of how pathophysiological activities are generated in developmental disorders.
