Current Research 

Using in vivo electrophysiology and two photon imaging, Kyle is dissecting the role of Arc in critical period plasticity of the mouse visual cortex, and in developmental forms of plasticity necessary to “tune” neurons to properly respond to and encode visual stimuli in adulthood.
