Advanced Technology for Motor Neurophysiology

By developing advanced nanofabrication tools for manufacturing ultra-dense, ultra-flexible electrode arrays, we are creating a new class of electromyography (EMG) electrodes capable of recording large populations of single-unit recordings from muscle fibers during behavior.

Neuroanatomical and Neuromodulatory Mechanisms of Motor Plasticity

By combining advanced neuroanatomical methods with behavioral and pharmacological manipulations, we investigate the neural mechanisms of learning.

Variability, Bayesian Inference, and Sensorimotor Learning

By combining long-term manipulations of auditory feedback with mathematical models of sensorimotor learning, we reveal the computational principles underlying vocal learning.

Spiking Codes for Skilled Motor Control

By analyzing single-unit recordings from neurons and muscle fibers during complex behaviors in songbirds (and, more recently, rodents), we examine how the brain regulates precisely-timed spike patterns to control agile behavior.
