Lab Manager
Anna is a research specialist at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute where she is the lab manager of the Brain Development Lab. Currently, her research focuses on characterizing patterns of cortical pleating in the human dorsal visual stream, as well as examining the corresponding neural and behavioral development of visuospatial attention.

Graduate Student
Frederick is a Presidential Fellow and PhD candidate in the Neuroscience Department at Princeton University. His research focuses on large scale brain networks and cerebellar contributions to cortical structure and function across the lifespan, and is supported by the National Science Foundation and National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

Edan Daniel

Graduate Student
Edan is a PhD student at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. She previously worked on EEG analyses in the Dinstein Lab at Ben-Gurion University in Israel, and now researches how visual experience during either childhood or adulthood shapes the organization and computations that occur within visual cortex.

Graduate Student
Omar Singleton is a PhD student at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. He previously worked on neuroimaging projects at MGH, and now studies how the human thalamus develops across the lifespan and the roles it plays in mediating developmental changes in the cortex in neurotypical individuals and those diagnosed with psychiatric disorders.

Patricia Hoyos

Graduate Student
Patricia Hoyos is a PhD candidate at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, and member of the Gomez and Kastner labs. She is currently studying the development of the human dorsal stream to understand how changes in our attentional abilities and biases are shaped by structural and computational changes occurring within visual cortex. Patricia is also an HHMI Gilliam Fellow and Presidential Fellow.
