Nick Steinmetz

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Structure at the University of Washington in Seattle, and Program Coordinator for a Collaborative Grant from the Wellcome Trust to develop Neuropixels 2.0.

My lab focuses on understanding the neural circuits and systems that underlie perception and cognition across the brain. We approach these problems with a combination of large-scale electrophysiology with Neuropixels probes, calcium imaging across neocortical areas, and systematic optogenetic manipulations, all in combination with sophisticated behavioral tasks for mice.
