Research Summary

My laboratory's research concerns cortical mechanisms of behavior and our experiments 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, etc., and also by investigations of the behavioral effects of experimental brain lesions and computer simulations of cortical networks' underlying behavior. "Our mission is nothing short of trying to crack the brain code."
