Ilker Ozden Portrait


Ilker Ozden’s research focuses on understanding (1) the interactive roles of the cortex, basal ganglia and cerebellum in motor control and learning and (2) how disrupted neural signaling across these brain regions leads to motor deficits, such as those in Parkinson’s disease. His lab uses optogenetics, multichannel electrophysiology and functional imaging in healthy and diseased rodent models to identify components of abnormal brain activity responsible for motor deficits and develops methods to target these components for therapy.
