My lab uses both theoretical and experimental approaches to study cognitive processes. Our principal interests are short-term memory, decision-making, and time perception.
 
On the theoretical side, we use dynamical systems approaches to describe biophysically-based models of networks of neurons. Our model networks typically have thousands of spiking neurons.
 
On the experimental side, we train rats to perform psychophysical tasks that involve a cognitive process of interest to us, and then record from them and perform perturbations to test our theoretical models.
