Seungwoo Kang, Ph.D.
I am a neuroscientist who wants to contribute to the public health field by elucidating the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of addiction and its comorbid disorders. My work applies multi-layered combination of classical assays such as ex vivo electrophysiology and biochemistry with advanced techniques including multi-brain regional behavior-synchronized recordings with in vivo electrophysiology, fiber-photometry/microendoscopy calcium imaging to expand our understanding of the cell, circuit, and context basis of motivated behaviors and its pathophysiological adaptation.
I am currently working as an Assistant Professor of Pharmacology/Research Scientist at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota.
You can find the information about my background, research interests, and publications here.
