Dr Yossi Buskila
Research Program: Bioelectronics and Neuroscience
Yossi Buskila is a postdoctoral research fellow in Neurophysiology in the MARCS Institute. He received his PhD degree in neurophysiology from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel, in 2010. Following his PhD he joined the lab of Prof. Graham Ellis-Davies in the Department of Physiology at Drexel University College of Medicine as a postdoctoral research fellow, where he studied the effect of β-amyloid on cortical pyramidal neurons using electrophysiological and 2-photon imaging techniques. Yossi’s research focuses on neuronal plasticity and signal processing in the cortex. He use multi-site electrophysiological recordings in brain slices along with imaging techniques to study the adaptation of spike propagation delays in dendrites and also the neuronal-astrocytic interactions in the somatosensory cortex.
