Center for Perceptual Systems

Baowang Li

Baowang Li (Ph.D., the Chinese Academy of Sciences), joined the Center for Perceptual Systems in May, 2015 as a research fellow supervised by Dr. Seidemann and Dr. Priebe. His research interest is to understand the neural bases of visual perception in the visual cortex. He is currently conducting whole-cell intracellular recordings in the cortex of behaving primates to examine the relationships between membrane potentials of single cortical neurons and perceptual decisions in detection tasks.
