Welcome Jon Wong… sorry I don’t have a rig set up yet.  Thanks to Kim McAllister for allowing us the use one of her rigs so it can be a worthwhile rotation!!

Jon, a first year PhD student in the Neuroscience Graduate Group, had the unique opportunity for a student at a liberal arts college (Calvin College) to gain experience with patch clamp electrophysiology. Using a mouse model of corpus collosum agenesis, he found that the Probst bundle, a collection of aberrant axons that forms in these mice, makes functional connections to the posterior cortex. I’m excited to have him rotating in my lab!

My first rotation student!
