Research interests

We are interested in the link between the pattern of activity of neural networks and a fly’s behavior.


Research activity


We are interested in the relationship between the dynamics of neural networks and
animal behavior. Our research focuses on the integrative processes by which the brain
corresponds ongoing sensory signals with proceeding motor actions. Our goal is to
identify the neural representations and computational principles occurring in interacting
populations of neurons during sensorimotor tasks. In addition, we aim to describe the
mechanisms by which these neural circuit computations emerge from the biophysical
properties of neurons and synapsis
