Headshot for Nicholas Lusk Scientist I Allen Institute for Brain Science

Nicholas Lusk, Ph.D.

Scientist I


He received his B.S. degree in Neuroscience from the University of Michigan in 2011. From there he attended Duke University obtaining his doctorate in Psychology & Neuroscience. While at Duke he worked with Dr. Warren Meck, with his research focused on understanding the neural circuitry underlying timing and time perception. Specifically, his research outlined the involvement of corticothalamic signalling in temporal processing. After graduating, he remained at Duke where he helped in developing analysis pipelines for multi-animal motion tracking and 2-photon imaging in the study of social behavior in mice. At the Allen Institute he works on image analysis and whole-brain single cell quantification, developing analytical and visualization pipelines for serial two-photon tomography and lightsheet imaging datasets.
