Neural Circuits Underlying Perceptual and Cognitive Functions

Tirin Moore wants to understand the neural circuits responsible for fundamental perceptual and cognitive functions. Moore and his team study the activity of large populations of single neurons in visual and motor structures within the brain. They test how perturbing that activity affects neurons in other brain structures, as well as how it affects the perceptual, cognitive, and motor performance of behaving animals. In addition, the team is committed to developing and implementing novel and innovative approaches to fundamental problems systems and circuit-level neuroscience.
