Long is the Thomas and Susanne Murphy Professor of Neuroscience and vice chair for research at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. He completed his graduate studies at Brown University, where he investigated the role of electrical synapses in the mammalian brain. During his postdoctoral work at MIT, Long began to study the songbird model system to uncover the cellular and network properties that give rise to learned vocal sequences. Since beginning his laboratory in 2010, Long has expanded his scope, leading to investigations into a range of vocalizing species, including humans.
