We want to understand the key principles underlying sensorimotor transformations in the brain. Current research includes investigating neuronal substrates of internal models of the world, as well as the nature of odor space and the flow of information across the brain during behavior in closed-loop environments.
The broad scope of this effort is understanding how actions relate to perception. We monitor and perturb inputs, outputs and top-down feedback across specific neuronal circuits and brain areas underlying the processing of sensory information, and generation of predictions for sensory consequences of motor actions.
The following describes our projects and the array of tools we use. We welcome your input, and value open and wide sharing of ideas, results and tools.
