Ph.D. Alumni
Sit's research focuses on understanding how the visual cortex encodes information, through mathematical and computational modeling. Much of this work is grounded on data using optical imaging with voltage-sensitive dyes (VSDI). Eyal Seidemann of UT Psychology was his dissertation co-advisor.
