Xuemei Song.CV


Dr. Song obtained Ph.D. in Shanghai Institute of Biological Science, Chinese Academy of Science in 2007. She was a Research Assistant from 2007 to 2010, and Associate Investigator from 2010 to 2015 in Shanghai Institute of Biological Science. Using the in vivo single-unit recording and juxta-cellular labeling, she found that all labeled contrast-dependent (CD) cells were pyramidal cells, whereas all labeled contrast-independent (CID) cells were non-pyramidal cells, CIDf cells were spiny satellates and CIDs cells, smooth interneurons. She demonstrated the global distinction between summation properties of pyramidal and nonpyramidal cells and between the smooth and spiny nonpyramidal cells as well. Dr. Song joined Interdisciplinary Institute of Neuroscience and Technology at Zhejiang University (Ziint) in September 2015 as an Associate Professor.
