We are interested in how individual and small groups of neurons arranged into microcircuits break sensory patterns into parallel, highly specific representations of the outside world. We use a combination of two-photon imaging of genetically encoded biosensors, electrophysiology, patterned light stimulation and computational modelling to probe the visual processing of individual and networks of neurons in the retina and brain of zebrafish and mice.
