Professional Statement

The research of our lab is aim at understanding the neural circuits involved in the planning and execution of voluntary movements. We study how specific cell types are organized into neural circuits in the mouse cortex and connected brain regions. We use this knowledge and causal manipulations of neurons to establish relationships between neural circuits, activity patterns, and behavior.
