What are the neural population dynamics that give rise to experience-guided perception? How are memories manifest in brain activity? Can we intercept or enhance this activity?

We’re interested in the neural mechanisms underlying perception and memory formation. We use multi-channel recording and stimulation techniques applied during behavioral tasks, along with time- and frequency-domain analysis techniques. The goal is to understand neural phenomena such as the cellular basis of oscillatory brain activity and then to determine the role these phenomena may play in adaptive behaviors such as memory-guided exploration of the environment.
