(Turn and face the strange*)

Active sensation:

This program addresses how orofacial behaviors, with current emphasis on the lingual, nasal, and vibrissa sensorimotor systems, encode a stable world view through coordinated movement of sensors.

Microcirculation in the brain:

This program explores the structure and control of blood flow in the brain, and variations in that flow, at the level of brain-wide vascular networks down to that of individual microvessels.


This program creates cell-based sensors of signaling molecules to study volume transmission and neuromodulation in the brains of behaving animals.
