Jonathan is a medical student at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He graduated from the Unviersity of Pittsburgh in 2019 with a B.S. in neuroscience. During undergrad, he worked in Dr. Schluter in the Department of Neuroscience looking into the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in the visual cortex during developmental critical periods. He later spent a year with Dr. Linda Buck at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, studying the molecular mechanisms and neural circuits that underlie olfactory effects on perception, instinctive odor responses, and basic drives, such as appetite and stress.
Research Interest Summary
Stroke, Motor Control, Neurorehabilitation, Spinal Cord Injury, Proprioception
Jonathan is currently investigating proprioceptive pathways in internal capsule stroke. He is interested in the role of the internal capsule axons in the regulation of sensory spinal processes and how sensory feedback in motor deficits impact stroke rehabilitation.
