Dongqin Cai joins the lab!

September 1, 2018
Dongqin Cai received her Ph.D. degree in 2018 from Tsinghua University of Beijing, in China, where she investigated the synaptic and circuit mechanisms of thalamo-cortical pathway. Using in-vivo patch clamp recording, she found the critical role of inhibition in the maturation of temporal processing in auditory cortex. With monosynaptic virus tracing, she established the whole-brain connection for non-lemniscal auditory thalamus. Her postdoctoral research now focuses on the neurobiology of hyperexcitable brain circuits from synapses to perception.
