Tamina Keira Ramirez

Research Associate II

Tamina joined the Allen Institute in 2018 as part of the Neural Coding Team. The team is working towards understanding neural activity and connectivity following external stimuli. Using an in-vivo multichannel electrophysiology technique, they are able to record from multiple visual areas simultaneously. Prior to joining the Institute, Tamina worked at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute where she used in-vitro intracellular electrophysiology methods to assess the synaptic potential in pyramidal cells of adult overstimulated mice. Tamina earned her B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience from Western Washington University and worked with Dr. Janet Finlay to quantify catecholamine concentrations in varying brain areas in a mouse model of Huntington's Disease.
