Neurophysics Research

Active sensation:

This program addresses how orofacial behaviors, especially the vibrissa sensorimotor system, extracts a stable world view through actively moving sensors.

Cortical angioarchitecture and neuronal control of microcirculation:

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


This program uses of cell-based sensors of signaling molecules to study neuromodulation in behaving animals.
