Cortical Processing Laboratory

CortexLab

The cortical processing laboratory is a joint effort of Matteo Carandini and Kenneth Harris. We aim to understand how populations of neurons in cortex process sensory information, and how they integrate it with information from within the brain to guide perception and action.

We investigate these questions with a combination of experiment and computational analysis. We work mostly in the mouse brain, with techniques such as neuromics, multielectrode recordings, optogenetics, imaging, operant conditioning, and virtual reality simulation. 

Our joint work is funded by the Wellcome Trust and by the Simons Foundation
