How do we perceive objects and events? How does the brain optimize our ability to detect and discriminate? How do we volitionally control our sensations, and what goes awry when this ability is impaired and our perceptions are altered?
To address these questions we study neurobiological mechanisms that control the perceptions of touch and pain.
An underlying theme in our studies is an integrative approach focusing on cellular, network, computational and behavioral correlates of neuronal information processing.
