JohnDMurrayI am an Assistant Professor at Yale University School of Medicine in the Department of Psychiatry, where I direct a new Computational Neuroscience Lab. Previously I was a postdoctoral associate in the lab of Xiao-Jing Wang, in the Center for Neural Science at New York University. I received my Ph.D. in Physics at Yale University.

Current research interests are in the dynamics of cortical circuits that subserve cognitive functions. To investigate these issues, we analyze neural data and build neural circuit models across several levels of scale and complexity, ranging from detailed microcircuitry to long-range interactions between brain areas. We also develop neural circuit models to advance the study of mental disorders, in a framework for Computational Psychiatry. On all these fronts, we work closely with experimental collaborators. We are part of the Swartz Program in Theoretical Neurobiology at Yale.
