Our goal in the Neuroproshetics and Sensorimotor Research Laboratory is to elucidate the neural basis of neuroprosthetic and sensorimotor skill learning, decision making, motivation and attention. We use electrophysiology, voltammetry, electrical stimulation and mathematical modeling to understand how sensorimotor information is encoded and learning is achieved in the central nervous system of the rodents. We use computational neuroscience and machine learning techniques in order to improve our undestanding of neural information processing principles in the sensorimotor system.
