Research interests:
 
I am interested in understanding how functional and computational properties of the brain are implemented by the physiological and biological properties of neurons and circuits. In my lab we study several examples of neural systems that allow us to approach the biological mechanisms underlying brain computations. One set of projects addresses questions about how synaptic inputs are integrated by the dendritic trees of neurons and how this integration can be related specific functions.
