Incoming Neurophotonics Center assistant professor Matthias Stangl is looking into the “how” and “why” of neural mechanisms

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.
