Population coding in freely moving animals
We use a novel technology for wireless recording from Utah arrays implanted in visual and prefrontal cortices during active and resting states. The tasks are designed to be engaging for the subject and the electro-physiological recording with a lightweight wireless head-mount minimally interferes with behavioral freedom. Video recording and eye tracking may be used to track the behavior.
Optical and electrical manipulations of neuronal populations
To study the neural circuitry mediating perceptual decision-making, we use optical and electrical stimulation techniques to modulate the activity of populations of neurons in visual cortex and prefrontal cortex while subjects perform various tasks.
Neural correlates of visual behavior and resting state
Using acute and chronic arrays of micro-electrodes, we probe population responses in V1 and V4 areas during visual detection and discrimination tasks or resting state.
