Dr. Kevin Dorgans is an electrophysiologist specialized in the general study of neuronal networks and more specifically synaptic transmission in-vitro. He has a strong experience in patch-clamp methods combined with various imaging technologies especially 2-photon or calcium imaging. He is interested in the integration of sensorimotor stimulations by the nervous system and their processing at the synaptic level.
