Douglas A. Baxter received his Ph.D. (Neuroscience) from The University of Texas in Austin in 1981. His graduate studies were
conducted in the laboratory of Dr. George Bittner, and his postdoctoral training was with Drs. Dan Johnston (Baylor College of Medicine) and
Tom Brown (Beckman Research Institute at the City of Hope). Dr. Baxter's research has focused on examining mechanisms of neuronal plasticity,
learning and memory. His approach has been to combine cellular neurophysiological experiments with detailed mathematical modeling. In addition,
Dr. Baxter and his colleagues have developed a general purpose simulation environment for simulating single neurons and small networks.
