Our research focuses on the study of the organization and dynamics of cortical brain circuits, and their disruption in disease. We use experimental and theoretical (computational) approaches to study molecular, synaptic, cellular interactions and interareal network connectivity, as the basis of cognitive and emotional processing for flexible attention and goal-oriented behavior.
