From vision to action
We study the neural circuits of vision and develop approaches to investigate the brain in health and disease
Our main goal is to elucidate the biological mechanisms underlying visual processing and visually-guided behavior in mammals. Our research is centered on the visual cortex, its circuitry and its contribution to sensory perception and behavior.
We tackle these questions using cellular imaging and probe recordings in mice, in combination with genetic based circuit dissection. We also collaborate with others to study brain plasticity, development, and neurodegeneration, and use the latest CMOS technologies to characterize neural activity.
Our scientific questions
The purpose of the lab is to study the network computations and biological mechanisms that underlie this sensory processing in the mammalian brain. How are sensory computations implemented at the level of neural circuits? How are these computations adapted to the animal’s environment and to the animal’s behavioral goals?
