Neurobiology Lab Websites
We study how the circuitry of the retina translates the visual scene into electrical impulses in the optic nerve.
Our lab seeks to understand how the brain computes at the cellular and molecular level.
We seek to relate circuit dynamics to computation
by understanding the unique computational style used by the brain.
The Giocomo Lab integrates electrophysiology, behavior, imaging, gene manipulations and computational modeling to study how single-cell biophysics and network dynamics interact to mediate spatial memory and navigation.
We research how the brain works (function), how it can change through experience (plasticity) and how to repair brain circuits damaged by injury or disease (regeneration).
The Lin Lab applies biochemical knowledge and engineering principles to the development of protein-based tools for molecular imaging, optogenetic studies, and gene therapy.
Research in the Moore Lab focuses on identifying the neural circuits underlying fundamental perceptual and cognitive functions.
The Raymond Lab focuses on using the cerebellar and vestibular circuitry to understand the logic of neural learning algorithms.
The Shah Lab focuses on discovering how genes, neurons, and experience regulate gender differences in behavior.
By studying the visual system of mammals, the Shatz Lab discovered that adult wiring emerges from dynamic interactions between neurons involving neural function and synaptic plasticity.
