Professor, Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Kanold studies the development and plasticity of the brain, in particular how periods of learning and plasticity are initiated and controlled. His work focuses on the development of the central auditory and visual system in particular on the role of early cortical circuits in brain wiring. He uses advanced neurophysiological, in vivo imaging, optogenetic, molecular and computational techniques. His work furthers our understanding of how prenatal and postnatal brain injury contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy and schizophrenia.
