GRADUATE STUDENTS

WenXi is a PhD student in neuroscience at NYU. Her work in the lab focuses on discovering a locus of plasticity in the mouse cortex for learning about self-generated sounds.
Brooke is a PhD student in neuroscience at NYU. She is quantifying the nature of information flow between motor and auditory cortex during sound-generating behaviors. Brooke is the recipient of a predoctoral NRSA from the NIDCD.
Ralph is a PhD student in neuroscience at NYU and is co-advised by Dan Sanes. He is studying social-vocal interactions in a gregarious rodent species, the Mongolian gerbil.

POSTDOCS

Nick did his PhD in the lab of Allison Barth at Carnegie Mellon. In the Schneider lab, he is discovering how cortical circuits integrate sensory and motor signals to make predictions.
Karin did her PhD in the lab of Daniel Huber at the University of Geneva. She combines behavior, imaging, and physiology to study how brain processes auditory objects during movement. Karin is supported by a Postdoc.Mobility fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Alessandro did his PhD with Tobias Bonhoeffer and Mark Hubener at the MPI for Neurobiology. In the Schneider lab, he is building immersive VR environments to study how predictions change as a function of context. 
Athena is an undergraduate neuroscience and computer science major at Harvard. She is applying machine learning technologies to identify and quantify rodent vocalizations.

RESEARCH ASSISTANTS

Hoda joined the Schneider lab as its first official member after finishing her MS in Cognitive Science at UCL. She is studying how untrained movements such as pupil dilation can indicate surprise and expectation.
Pedro Estrada is an undergraduate at Tulane, majoring in neuroscience and philosophy. He will join the lab in the summer of 2021 through NYU's Summer Undergraduate Research Program.
