    World-Leading Authority on Brain Mapping

    Profile

    Rafael Yuste is an HHMI investigator, Professor of Biological Sciences and Neuroscience at Columbia University, and Co-director of the Kavli Foundations Institute for Neural Circuitry.

    Dr. Yuste has pioneered the application of imaging techniques in neuroscience, such as calcium imaging of neuronal circuits, two-photon imaging, photostimulation using caged compounds, and holographic spatial light modulation microscopy. These technical developments have resulted in several patents, two of which are commercially licensed.

    Yuste has recently been involved in launching the Brain Activity Map Project, a large-scale international effort to record and manipulate the activity of every neuron in brain circuits, a role highlighted by Nature who named Yuste "one of the 5 scientists to watch in 2013."

    Rafael Yuste holds a Ph.D in Neuroscience from Rockefeller University and did post-doctorate studies on Computational Biology at Bell Labs. He is a visiting investigator at Instituto Cajal (Span) and the Allen Institute for Brain Science.
