Research Interests:

One of the fundamental problems in systems neuroscience today is to understand how the activation of large populations of neurons gives rise to some of the most interesting functions of the brain, such as perception, action, learning, memory, cognition and ultimately conscious awareness. Over the past thirty years, electrophysiological recordings in behaving animals have revealed considerable information about the firing patterns of single neurons in isolation, but it remains a mystery how large collections of interacting neurons mediate these functions. My overall research program is to understand how neuronal ensembles in the cortex act together to control, coordinate, and learn complex movements of the arm and hand.
