Laboratory of Neurophysiological Modulation and Behavior

Our interests are to understand the modulation of individual neurons and distributed neural coding and its relation to cognitive and behavioral changes.  These interactions are studied for both the rodent vibrissa somatosensory system and the frontostriatal system using a variety of pharmacological, brain stimulation, and behavioral techniques.  Our currently active projects are listed below:
