Brain Windows is a blog devoted to reporting, analyzing and interpreting the latest results in the field of brain imaging technologies, particularly at the levels of systems, circuits, single cells and below. Occasionally, your host may post novel, primary data not suitable for formal publication to support his analysis. Your host is Andrew Hires, who first studied Brain and Cognitive Sciences as an undergrad at MIT. In 2007, he received his Ph.D. in Neurosciences in the lab of Roger Tsien at UCSD. This was followed by a brief post-doc with Loren Looger at Janelia Farm. He now works as a post-doc with Karel Svoboda, also at Janelia Farm. His work focuses on development of optogenetic sensors of neuronal signaling and the study of neural circuits governing sensory integration in the mouse.
