Neuroscientist Matthias Stangl will be joining the Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Neurophotonics Center (NPC), the Center for Systems Neuroscience, and the Cognitive Neuroimaging Center this January after an already impressive career at UCLA as a postdoctoral scholar aiming to develop a better understanding of the brain’s functionality––not only within a laboratory setting, but in the natural world. Some of his research has led to publications documenting the maladaptive neural noise produced in aging brains during ambulatory walking and spatial navigation activities, as well as insights into how our brains are able to keep track of other people. Now, in the ever-advancing field of neuroscience, Stangl hopes to expand the horizon of out-of-laboratory research in his new role at the NPC.
