Bio

Dr. Komiyama is a Professor in the Neurobiology Section and the Department of Neurosciences at University of California, San Diego. He is interested in studying the activity of neuronal ensembles in behaving animals, examining how these ensembles may change with experience and learning. His lab is among the pioneers to use in vivo two-photon calcium imaging in awake, behaving mice. During his postdoctoral training at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, he pioneered the use of in vivo two-photon calcium imaging to study learned behavior.
