This is the website/blog of Jakob Voigts. I’m a Postdoc in Mark Harnett’s lab at the McGovern Institute for brain research at MIT. I did my PhD work with Chris Moore and Emery Brown. In my research I am using optogenetic methods, electrophysiology, and 2-photon imaging in awake behaving mice to study how sensory data is processed by the neocortical circuitry.
I set up this blog as a space to post some small observations and method writeups that might be useful to others.
A lot of ephys specific in-depth methods related information can also be found at Open Ephys, a non-profit that I co-founded with Josh Siegle that aims to make, showcase, and distribute cutting edge open-source tools for neuroscience.
