Jake Bernstein[Email: jberns, followed by @media.mit.edu ]
Jake Bernstein joined the lab as an undergraduate during the Fall of his senior year, earned an S.B. in Physics at MIT, and is currently working towards a Ph.D. He has developed optical fiber arrays for independent multisite neural modulation, and deployed optical stimulators for many experiments in the lab, and in collaborating labs. Now he is working on new methods for recording neural data from many neurons in the brain.
