Kevin L Briggman, Ph.D., Investigator

Dr. Briggman received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 2000 and his Ph.D. in Computational Neurobiology from the University of California, San Diego in 2005, where he studied behavioral choice using voltage-sensitive dye population imaging in the leech nervous system with Bill Kristan. During a postdoctoral fellowship with Winfried Denk at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research, he worked on the development of serial block-face scanning electron microscopy and used it in combination with two-photon population calcium imaging to investigate the circuit mechanisms underlying direction-selectivity in the mammalian retina. Dr. Briggman joined NINDS as an investigator in 2011. His laboratory develops large scale optical and electron microscopy-based methods to functionally and structurally map neuronal circuits in the central nervous systems of mice and fish.
