Neuronal processing of visual information

Our research focuses on understanding how brain neuronal networks process visual information and how experience durably modifies the activity of these networks. Our current projects investigate: (i) how visually-guided behaviour modulates neuronal activity in the visual cortex; (ii) how individual pyramidal neurons integrate feed-forward visual inputs with contextual inputs; and (iii) how cortical information processing is impacted by metabolic state.
