Ben studies cerebellar roles in decision-making and working memory using an evidence accumulation paradigm. His work includes two-photon calcium imaging, optogenetic manipulations, and behavior modeling.

Tom Pisano is an M.D./Ph.D. student and a NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein Predoctoral Fellow in the Wang Lab. His research concerns the long distance connectivity of the posterior cerebellum. His research uses a combination of viral tracers, computational neuroanatomy, machine learning and whole brain clearing techniques to look at the topographical organization of cerebellar connections to the rest of the brain. His interests include cerebello-thalamo-cortical connections and the cerebellum's contribution to non-motor behavior.
