Maureen Hagan



Maureen’s research focuses on how coordinated eye-hand movements influence the neural activity in the posterior parietal cortex. She is ¬†interested in how populations of neurons in different brain regions interact to accomplish the computations necessary for complex behaviors. By recording information simultaneously from area LIP and PRR, she has studied how different parts of the brain communicate with one another to better our understanding of how neural circuits are constructed across brain regions. Maureen is currently completing a postdoc with Marcello Rosa at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
