Our goal is to uncover the principles by which mammalian neural circuits perform fundamental computations, from perception to action. Cortex is parcellated into areas with distinct functions, each of which contains complex local circuits. Cortical areas in turn associate into mesoscale circuits with other cortical and subcortical areas via long-range connections. Information is represented by...   More >
