At my lab we are interested in forming an integrated picture of learning, memory and development, processes that share many common mechanisms. We do this by developing mathematical models of the substrates of these processes, and studying these models using both computer simulations and analytical techniques. Since we strive to develop an integrated theory that can account for these processes, our studies span many levels of description from the molecular basis of synaptic plasticity to the system level properties of the visual cortex. The research in my lab is always closely related to experimental studies, and I have often closely collaborated with experimental labs.
