Kaitlyn Casimo is a Ph.D. student in the Graduate Program in Neuroscience. She studies the electrophysiology of human resting state connectivity. Her dissertation addresses both spontaneous and learning-related variation in resting state connectivity. These properties of the resting state have been investigated in fMRI, and to a lesser extent in EEG, but have not been previously investigated in ECoG as used by the GRID lab. Her previous work also includes the electrophysiological properties of resting state associated with brain-computer interface use. Outside of lab, she is active in science education and outreach through UW and Pacific Science Center, and enjoys theater and tennis.
