Welcome to the Rhythm 'n Rodents

Team BRAIN Circuit Program (U19) NS107466

We seek to discover principles that explain the design and function of brain-wide systems, guided by control theory and with a focus on rodent-based experiments. We consider how animals extract a stable picture of the world from the blur of inputs obtained with their actively moving sensors. We work with orofacial behaviors, with a focus on the vibrissa sensorimotor system of rats and mice; these animals palpate the world in front of them as they navigate and identify objects.
