Karina Keus

As a member of the UCLA Miniscope Project, my research entails designing and implementing novel, open-source tools to increase accessibility in science. My thesis project in the Aharoni Lab involves developing a combined calcium imaging-electrophysiological recording platform to track neural representations of spatial location over unprecedented time scales. This platform enables in-depth analysis of the role of different sleep states in memory consolidation across the full circadian cycle.
