My lab's primary interests are twofold: 1) study the basic mechanisms of sensorimotor integration; 2) engineer clinically viable brain machine interface (BMI) systems to restore, augment or repair damaged neurological function such as hearing, sight and movement.
We focus on the mechanisms of neural integration and coordination in sensorimotor systems in rodents and nonhuman primates. In particular, we seek to understand: 1) how ensembles of neurons represent and integrate multiple sensory cues to guide motor action; 2) how neural computations take place at the cellular and population level with cell-type specificity; 3) how neural ensemble activity can be decoded to actuate artificial devices; 4) how precise control of cell-type-specific events can perturb and control neural responses to evoke desired behavioral outcome.
