Kyuhyun Choi

Kyuhyun Choi attended Kyung Hee University in Korea for their undergraduate training and was granted a PhD degree in 2016. Their dissertation research focused on defining neural circuits important for the interplay between learning and emotion. In particular, Kyuhyun used slice electrophysiology and in-vivo optogenetics to study intra-amygdala and septo-habenular circuits. Kyuhyun joining the Fuccillo lab in mid-2016 to extend their knowledge about the function of disease-associated molecules in neural circuit function. Currently they are working to understand the contribution of fronto-striatal sub-circuits to goal-directed behavior.
