Guy Yona, M.Sc.

GYGuy is studying motor network activity in spontaneously running animals in the fMRI, using optogenetic stimulation and Parkinson’s Disease models to control and modulate the system. In order to achieve precise spatial control with optogenetics over large areas of the motor cortex, Guy develops a holographic patterned projection system with a chronic implant for use inside the MRI scanner.
