Tony Ye

My research combines animal models with electrophysiology and chemogenetics to investigate the neural signatures of Parkinson’s disease and Levodopa-induced dyskinesia. Specifically, I am interested in identifying causal patterns of electrical activity in the frontocoritcal regions that are associated with the cognitive impairments of Parkinson’s disease, with the ultimate goal of using these neural signatures as novel therapeutic targets.

She approaches this question from an embodied perspective, where different layers of the nervous systems interact with one another in a complex manner to produce behaviors at will
