Gene J Yu


Postdoctoral Associate

Born and raised in Peoria, IL, I completed my PhD at the University of Southern California for which I built a full-scale computational model of rat dentate gyrus and CA3 to investigate the effect of mesoscale connectivity on population dynamics. To better translate my neuronal network modeling background to the clinical setting, I joined the Grill Lab and Peterchev Lab to research the mechanisms underlying the network response to transcranial magnetic stimulation in motor cortex using computational methods.
