Dr. Soonwook Choi earned his B.A. and M.A. in biochemistry at Hanyang University and went on to earn his Ph.D. in neuroscience from University of Science and Technology (UST)-Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) joint graduate program in South Korea. He completed post-doctoral training at New York University School of Medicine (in Neuroscience), researching the role of P/Q-type and T-type calcium channels in neural circuits.
Choi’s research uses diverse in vivo ephys techniques to monitor and manipulate oscillatory rhythms in genetically modified neural circuits to find the molecular and/or electrophysiological explanations for how abnormal neural oscillations are generated, and how neural oscillations are related to altered brain functions and behavioral symptoms.
