Dan Feldman

About the Lecturer

Professor of Neurobiology
Department of Molecular & Cell Biology, Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute
University of California, Berkeley

Dr. Feldman has made important contributions to the field of neuroethology through his research investigating sensory information processing, learning, and plasticity in cerebral cortex. His research focuses on the rodent primary somatosensory cortex as a model system for understanding general coding principles of cortical function. Understanding basic brain function in these circuits has informed his work describing disorders of cortical function and plasticity, such as autism.

Dr. Feldman is chair of the Department of Molecular & Cellular Biology, recipient of the UC Berkeley Distinguished Teaching Award, and Director of the T32 Neuroscience Training Program at Berkeley. He is an engaging and dynamic speaker, and we hope that you can join us for this special event.
