One challenge of understanding how the brain works is the complexity of neural circuits. Optical methods provide a route to record and manipulate the neural activity of a small subset of neuron cells with cellular resolution. In this talk, I will discuss our approach to tackling the above challenges through novel three-dimensional (3D) imaging and optical manipulation methods.

One challenge of understanding how the brain works is the complexity of neural circuits. These circuits are composed of hundreds of thousands of neurons that are interconnected in a highly distributed fashion. Optical methods provide a route to record and manipulate the neural activity of a small subset of these cells with cellular resolution. The desire to access a larger volume with higher... More >

Decoding the dynamics of brain activity underlying conscious behavior is one of the key questions in systems neuroscience. Sensory neurons, such as those in the auditory system, can undergo rapid and task-dependent changes in their response characteristics during attentive behavior, and thereby result in functional changes in the system over time. In order to quantify humans conscious... More >
