Jonathan Levitt is a neurobiologist who studies the neural basis of visual perception, and the organization and development of mammalian cerebral cortex using electrophysiological and neuroanatomical techniques. His lab is interested in characterizing differences in anatomical circuits among different brain regions, and how these circuits underlie physiological properties of individual neurons, as well as human perceptual and cognitive behavior. He also aims to understand how early brain damage or sensory experience leads to changes in the normal organization and function of the brain. He has extensive experience directing research training programs at CCNY that will help to facilitate the development of the TREND research training program. He is Program Director of the NIH-funded MARC U-STAR (Maximizing Access to Research Careers: Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research) undergraduate research training program, and co-PI of the NSF-funded REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program at CCNY. In his role as faculty on the Research Education Curriculum and Training (REACT) Core he will ensure that the TREND research training activities do not overlap with the MARC training activities, and will refer appropriate students to the TREND Partnership research training program.
