Research Description:

My lab provides a rich training environment for current and future students of the Neuroscience Training Program. We focus on interactions between the nervous system and body, in particular during control of movement, with special emphasis on modulation by development and behavioral state. I have a broad background in neurophysiology, animal behavior, and biomechanics across a range of species (zebrafish, mormyrid, mouse, rat, rhesus macaque), with specific training in computational modeling, neural circuit development, synaptic physiology and plasticity, calcium imaging, motor control, and vertebrate behavior.

Key Words:

Motor Control, Neurophysiology, Development and Behavioral State, Neural Circuit Development
