  • Gil Vantomme

    Gil Vantomme

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioI am a postdoctoral fellow interested in studying synaptic physiology and dysfunctions. My researcher focuses on thalamocortical circuits involving cortical structures relevant for cognition and executive function. Taking advantage of mouse models of autism spectrum disorder and epilepsy, I aim to uncover defects in synaptic function that underlie these disorders.

  • Joseph Winer

    Joseph Winer

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Neurology and Neurological Sciences

    BioJoe Winer completed his PhD in Psychology at UC Berkeley working with Matthew Walker and William Jagust. During his PhD, Joe used overnight EEG and PET imaging to investigate connections between sleep disruption and Alzheimer's disease in the context of healthy aging. At Stanford, Joe's research combines wearable devices, neuroimaging, and other biomarkers to explore how tracking sleep and other factors in everyday life can provide information about brain health and cognitive trajectories in aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
