Jessica Cardin, Ph.D.

Yale University


Dr. Cardin is an associate professor of neuroscience at the Yale University School of Medicine, where her lab studies the flexible function of cortical circuits in health and developmental disease. Her lab at Yale uses a multilevel electrophysiological and optical approach to explore the dynamic interactions between inhibitory and excitatory neurons that underlie the flexible encoding of visual information in cortical circuits, and how cortical circuit function varies with behavioral state and learning. The Cardin lab also studies how developmental dysregulation of cortical circuits leads to compromised perceptual and cognitive function in models of autism and schizophrenia.
