Our research group studies how 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 molecularly identified cells in the living brain; quantitative analysis of the resulting large-scale data sets; and theoretical modelling of brain circuits. 

AVAILABLE PROJECTS:

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 and in situ RNA sequencing data
