Research Information:

Sensory systems are the gateway from the external world to our brains. They actively process raw sensory input and convert it into a form animals can use to guide themselves and interact appropriately. Sensory systems use feedback to optimize the analysis of important features of the environment. I study the role of feedback in sensory processing using an electric fish model.
