Bio/Research

My lab focuses on how neuronal activity underlies conscious visual perception. We are working to decipher the neural code, the rules neurons use to encode behaviorally relevant information in their electrical activity. The lab uses a combination of electrophysiological, behavioral, and computational techniques. We measure cortical responses during visually-guided tasks and construct quantitative models that link neuronal activity to perception. Our systems level approach is essential for understanding the biological mechanisms of higher brain function.
