Dr. Hysell V. Oviedo
Dr. Oviedo did her postdoctoral fellowship at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. She earned her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from New York University’s Center for Neural Science. She holds two bachelor’s degrees (BS in Biology and BA in Literature) from Stockton College.
Dr. Hysell V. Oviedo is a neurophysiologist interested in the function and dysfunction of auditory cortical circuits. The computations performed in the auditory cortex are integral for the animal vocalization processing necessary for communication. Dr. Oviedo’s lab uses rodents as a model system because, similar to humans, they are capable of using vocalizations for social/reproductive interactions. In addition, rodents provide the advantage of powerful genetic tools to study the neural mechanisms of communication signal processing. Dr. Oviedo combines a reverse engineering approach with physiological, anatomical and optogenetic techniques, to identify circuit specializations in the auditory cortex involved in vocalization processing and their alterations in communication disorders.
