JohnDMurrayMy research is in Computational Neuroscience. I am an Assistant Professor at Yale University School of Medicine in the Department of Psychiatry. 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.

My current research interests are in the dynamics of cortical circuits that subserve cognitive functions. To investigate these issues, I 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. I also develop neural circuit models to advance the study of mental disorders, in a framework for Computational Psychiatry. On all these fronts, I work closely with experimental collaborators.

The Murray Lab at Yale is currently recruiting postdoctoral associates and graduate students. Please contact me if interested.
