Robertas Guzulaitis

Robertas obtained his PhD from the Vilnius University, Lithuania and worked as a
postdoctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Now he is interested
in how sensory information is encoded in secondary somatosensory cortex (S2) and how
this relates to behaviour. To address this he uses electrophysiology and 2P Ca2+ imaging
in vivo.

Joined the Palmer Laboratory in 2018
