Cortical Processing Laboratory
We aim to understand how the brain processes sensory signals, and integrates them with internal signals to guide decision and action. We wish to understand these processes at the level of large populations of individual neurons.
We investigate these questions with a combination of experiment and computational analysis. We work mostly in the mouse brain, with techniques such as neuromics, high-count electrodes (Neuropixels), optogenetics, imaging, operant conditioning, and virtual reality simulation.
Our joint work is funded by the Wellcome Trust and by the Simons Foundation. Other projects are funded by the European Research Council and by the UK's Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
