Schoppik Lab

How does the brain learn to balance?

We're constantly engaged in a vital struggle against gravity. Using a set of unconscious reflexes, we stabilize our bodies. Amazingly, these reflexes adapt as our bodies grow.

We study how developing brains learn to balance.

The Schoppik Lab is a part of the exciting new Neuroscience Institute at NYU Langone Medical Center. We belong to the Otolaryngology and  Neuroscience & Physiology Departments. Our little corner of the world has a couple new investigators starting their labs, including Katherine NagelMike HalassaJayeeta Basu, Nic Tritsch, and Biyu Jade He.

Graduate students can join our laboratory as part of the Neuroscience & Physiology or Neural Science doctoral programs
