The Department of Physics is pleased to welcome Dr. Christine Constantinople for an in-person colloquium on Thursday, March 16, 2023. Constantinople is the Principal Investigator of Constantinople Lab at the NYU Center for Neural Science. The Constantinople lab is interested in the mechanisms by which neural circuits compute and represent cognitive variables subserving decision-making. Their ultimate goal is to answer a major question in systems neuroscience: How do the task-relevant responses of neurons in decision-related circuits arise from the synaptic inputs those neurons receive. The Constantinople lab is particularly interested in value-based decision-making behaviors, and its long-term vision will be to understand the synaptic and circuit basis of neural computations guiding economic decision-making.
Dr. Constantinople graduated from New York University with a B.S. in Neural Science in 2008, and earned her PhD in Neurobiology and Behavior in Randy Bruno’s lab at Columbia University in 2013. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute with David Tank and Carlos Brody. She joined NYU as an Assistant Professor in the Center for Neural Science in January 2019. Christine is the recipient of a K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award and an NIH New Innovator Award from the National Institutes of Mental Health, an NSF CAREER Award, a research fellowship from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, a Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship Award in Neuroscience, a McKnight Scholars Award, and a CRCNS R01 with Cristina Savin from the National Institutes of Mental Health.
