Our laboratory is interested in two problems in neurobiology: (1) Active sensing, where we addresses how the vibrissa sensorimotor system of rodents extract a stable world view through their actively moving sensors, and (2) Neocortical microcirculation and neurovascular control,which explores the topology, dynamics, and neuronal control of cortical blood flow at the level of large-scale vascular networks down to that of single microvessels. Our efforts in both areas involve a broad range of techniques together with the opportunity to develop new tools. Please see our web site for further information concerning our work and recent publications.
