My lab’s overarching goal is to understand how neuronal activity in the cerebral cortex gives rise to cognitive functions. We address this question through designing behavioral tasks, acquiring experimental data via neurophysiological recordings and imaging, and computational analysis of the results. Our work focuses primarily on non-human primate models, but we aim to translate knowledge gained from these experiments for the benefit of human conditions in which cognitive functions have been compromised.
