Description of Research Expertise

My lab has two components, one experimental and one computational. Experimentally, we study the structural and functional organization of the retina. Using multi-electrode arrays we record the simultaneous responses of large numbers of retinal ganglion cells to visual stimuli. We use these data to study how retinal circuitry prepares visual input for cortical processing. The lab also studies the computational principles that underlie the organization of circuits in the early visual system (retina and V1), in the form vision pathway (IT), hippocampus (place cells), and entorhinal cortex (grid cells).
