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.
