Research in my lab explores the neural processing of sensory information in the context of behavior. This line of questioning provides an ideal platform to test specific hypotheses regarding the neural basis of sensory dysfunction in neurological disorders, including dementias and addiction, wherein sensory processing is abberant. To accomplish these major goals, we utilize a variety of methods to monitor neural activity ranging from multi-site electrophysiological recordings and imaging, to cutting-edge operant behavioral assays, some of which we perform in viral/genetic models to allow for understadning the contributions of specific cell-types to behaviors.
