  • Hippocampal Codes in Spatial Memory and Alzheimer’s Disease 

    Singer, Annabelle (2016-10-31)
    The hippocampus is essential for both spatial navigation and episodic memory. While decades of research has revealed patterns of neural activity in the hippocampus that represent information about the spatial environment, ...
  • Inhibitory Control of Cortical Activity in vivo 

    Haider, Bilal (2016-10-24)
    The cerebral cortex is the largest and most complicated structure of the mammalian brain. The cortex generates many regimes of spontaneous and sensory evoked activity. What are the cellular and circuit mechanisms that ...
  • How the Cortex Regulates the Thalamus 

    Connors, Barry (2016-10-17)
    The thalamus provides sensory information to the cerebral cortex, but the cortex also sends massive input to the thalamus. Top-down corticothalamic projections may allow the cortex to regulate sensory processing by modulating ...
  • Itch Receptors in the Airway 

    Han, Liang (2016-09-29)
    We use a combination of molecular, cellular, immunohistochemical, electrophysiological, genetic and behavioral approaches to understand how the nervous system receive, transmit and interpret various stimuli to induce ...
  • Identifying and Targeting Potential Biomarkers of Motor Dysfunction after Stroke using Non-invasive Neurostimulation and Neuroimaging 

    Borich, Michael (2016-09-19)
    Up to 80% of stroke survivors have persistent motor impairment of the paretic arm that interferes with performing functional activities and limits activity participation. Stroke can trigger maladaptive changes in the ...
  • Motor Control and Sensorimotor Learning: Behavior, Physiology, and Biomechanics 

    Sober, Samuel (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-09-12)
    The brain uses sensory feedback to calibrate the performance of complex behaviors. However, the neural and computational bases of sensorimotor learning remain mysterious. Our lab uses behavioral, physiological, biomechanical, ...
  • The Modular Brain 

    D'Esposito, Mark (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-09-09)
    What type of system is the brain? The brain is widely assumed to be one of many modular systems in nature, which are thought to be computational tractable and favored by evolution. While focal brain lesions lead to very ...
