Welcome to the Bruce Lab

Neurophysiology of Information Processing in Cerebral Cortex

My laboratory's research concerns cortical mechanisms of behavior and our experiments primarily involve studying the activity of single neurons in different regions of the neocortex. These neuronal recording data are complemented by several related techniques including intracortical microstimulation, physiological identification of corticocortical pathways with antidromic activation, neurochemical injection, neuroanatomical tracer injection and computer simulations of cortical networks underlying saccades.
