Alessandro Galloni, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow


Alessandro is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Milstein Lab. Before joining the lab, he received his PhD from The Francis Crick Institute & University College London for work with supervised by Dr. Ede Rancz. He studied the properties of L5 pyramidal neurons in the mouse visual cortex, using patch-clamp recordings in brain slices and analyzing biophysically detailed computational models to investigate how neuronal morphology shapes these properties. His work in the Milstein Lab is focused on building network models of neural circuits in the hippocampus to understand how recurrent connectivity and biologically plausible learning rules influence pattern recognition and memory storage in neural networks.
