Kelly Clancy

Branco-Weiss Fellow

Kelly Clancy is interested in how disparate brain areas coordinate their activity to effect complex behaviours. How does the brain dynamically route information over the fixed architecture of axonal projections? And how do cortical areas interact to support an animal's ability to causally control external objects? She combines widefield and 2-photon calcium imaging with electrophysiological recordings to understand the multiscale, local-to-global dynamics of neural firing.
