4 YEAR PhD IN NEUROSCIENCE
Our research group studieshow the neurons of the cerebral
cortex organize themselves together into a functional information processing
system. We do this in a multidisciplinary way, including development of
techniques to simultaneously record from large numbers of cells in the living
brain; quantitative analysis of the resulting large-scale data sets; and
theoretical modelling of brain circuits.
Analysis of sensory coding by neuronal populations of visual cortex
Development of computational tools for processing large-scale neural recordings
Identifying neuronal classes by analysis of single-cell RNA sequence data.
