Our research aims to elucidate (1) how visual information is encoded and processed in the mammalian brain, and (2) how neural circuits are shaped by visual experience. We use a multidisciplinary approach combining computational analyses and experimental studies at multiple levels, from single neurons and dendrites to animal behavior.
Current Projects: Study of cortical circuits and dynamics in slice, Characterization of neural circuits underlying receptive field properties in vivo, Studying ensemble coding with multielectrode recording and imaging, Exploring the neural correlate of perception in awake animals.
