Stopfer, Mark

Formal Title:






35A CONVENT DR Room 3E623, MSC 3715
Bethesda ,MD 20892

Topics in my portfolio:


Dr. Stopfer received his B.S. and Ph.D. from Yale University, where, with Tom Carew, he applied behavioral and electrophysiological techniques to study mechanisms underlying simple forms of learning. He then joined Gilles Laurent's laboratory at the California Institute of Technology where he examined the information processing properties that emerge within ensembles of neurons, focusing particularly upon oscillatory and synchronous neural activity. Dr. Stopfer came to NIH in 2002. His laboratory studies neural ensemble mechanisms underlying sensory coding in relatively simple animals.
