Blake graduated from MIT in 2020 with a BS in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and a minor in Biology. Their previous research in Matt Wilson’s lab focused on the effects of thalamic inhibition on spatial learning in rodents. Additionally, they profiled recurrent thalamocortical networks by mapping whole-brain inputs in Mriganka Sur’s lab. After graduating, Blake joined the Heiman Lab in the summer of 2020 as a research associate, where they currently study mechanisms of neurogenesis in the striatum.
