DeYoe Lab Personnel

Alex Puckett

I am a fifth year neuroscience graduate student working in the lab of Dr. Edgar DeYoe doing fMRI-based vision research. The title of my thesis project is "A Study of the Neurophysiological Correlates of Visual Attention as Revealed by fMRI-based Cortical and Functional Field Maps."

Andy Salzwedel

4th year PhD candidate. The main goal of my current project is to work out the neural circuitry that underlies color vision. More broadly, I’m interested in trying to understand how neural circuitry relates to perceptual events, specifically, those vision-related. My tool du jour is BOLD fMRI.

Danielle Reitsma

I am a 5th year graduate student in the Neuroscience Doctoral Program, department of Biophysics (MRI tract). In the DeYoe lab, my research focuses on understanding the anatomy and neurophysiology of the visual system with and without direct pathology.

Edgar DeYoe, PhD

Dr. DeYoe is a tenured Professor in the Department of Radiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin and is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Bioengineering, at Marquette University. He trained as a neuroscientist and electrical engineer with dual PhD’s in neuroscience and experimental psychology from the University of Rochester and an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Lehigh University.

Jed Mathis

Research Technologist, I perform research and analysis for Dr. DeYoe while also helping the students in the lab with their own experiments.

Yan Ma

I am a fifth year graduate student in the joint program of Functional Imaging between Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin. My research aims at developing and evaluating novel paradigms for human visual cortex mapping with fMRI.
