Jason Yee (Ph.D.)

Research Scientist

Jason Yee, PhD has been a member of the CTNI for 4 years. His work is focused on developing awake neuroimaging capabilities in the socially monogamous and biparental prairie vole with the goal of building a new platform for truly translational studies on socioaffective processes. He recently published the first foundational paper in a reputable journal (NeuroImage) which featured lab's work on the issue cover. He currently leads the only group in the world capable of awake real-time imaging of the entire vole brain.
