Simon  Thompson

PhD Student

Simon Thompson is a PhD student under Dr Andrew Murray with previous experience of working as a technician in both the same laboratory and in an immunology laboratory based at UCL. 

Understanding the connectivity of the nervous system is a key question at the heart of modern neuroscientific research; from understanding basic physiological function to the impact of conditions such as autism. Simon's current work focusses on developing new tools, based Dr Murray's previous work with the rabies virus, to help understand and visualise this connectivity. These tools will hopefully be used by the Murray lab to explore questions regarding the vestibular system, and the wider neuroscience community as a whole.
