Many neural networks are multifunctional, i.e., activity is configured and then reconfigured to generate more than one output. Our research characterizes mechanisms that enable this form of plasticity. Our experiments are conducted in a model system; the feeding system of the marine mollusc Aplysia californica, and primarily utilize electrophysiological and imaging techniques.

PhD, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

Columbia University

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology companies, and other outside entities to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their outside financial relationships.

Dr. Cropper has not yet completed reporting of Industry relationships.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
