Anne E. Takesian, PhD
Dr. Anne Takesian is an Investigator in the Eaton-Peabody Laboratories at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School. Her research is focused on understanding how sound experience shapes and perturbs auditory cortical circuits. She uses electrophysiology, optogenetics, neural imaging, and transcriptional analysis to identify molecular and circuit level mechanisms underlying plasticity in the mouse auditory cortex. Her goal is to develop new treatments to promote cortical plasticity to reverse pathological processes and recover auditory function following hearing loss.
She obtained her doctorate from the Center for Neural Science at New York University before completing postdoctoral training at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard University.
