Our lab is interested in how the brain computes sensory information and how these computations change with the experience of the animal. We study both the structure and the function of neurons mainly in two sensory modalities – olfaction and audition. Our animal model is the mouse.
We use electrophysiology, imaging, behavior, & molecular biology (and especially combinations thereof) to measure, target and manipulate neurons in the intact brain.
