Lab of Circuits and behavior

Our motivation, perception, and behavior arise from the activity of millions of interconnected neurons in the brain.  We are interested in how this network of neurons processes information, transmits it throughout the brain, and converts the information into an appropriate behavior. We use zebrafish as our experimental model, and a combination of experimental, computational and mathematical techniques to address this question.
