Cortical computation, brain evolution, sleep

My lab is interested in gaining a functional and computational understanding of cortical circuits, of their roles in perception and behavior, and in the neuroscience and evolution of sleep. Our work centers on reptilian cortex because of its relative simplicity. We focus on cellular and synaptic integration and on systems issues, using electrophysiological, optical, molecular, behavioral and computational approaches.
