Neurophysics Research

Active sensation:

This program addresses how orofacial behaviors, with emphasis on the vibrissa sensorimotor system, encode a stable world view through actively moving sensors.

Microcirculation in the Brain:

This program explores the structure and control of cortical blood flow, and variations in that flow, at the level of vascular networks down to that of individual microvessels.


This program creates cell-based sensors of signaling molecules to study volume transmission and neuromodulation in the brains of behaving animals.
