Timothy Murphy studies connectivity in the mouse brain, and the effects of stroke. His work has shown that stroke in a limited area of the brain results in large scale reorganization of the network of the brain. Recovery from stroke is also associated with increased connectivity in the whole brain. Optogenetic tools are ideally suited to study connectivity, and the Murphy laboratory has an important expertise in this area.
