Research information:

My research program focuses on understanding how our nervous system enables us to move. We identify neurons in the brain and in the spinal cord, and determine their exact roles in our everyday movements.

Research information:

I use computational neuroscience tools to reveal the mechanisms used by the neural networks of the visual system in order to realise visual perception. This information complements that provided by animal research tools. The results of this basic research are applied towards translational research aimed at developing practical applications for medicine such as computer assisted interpretation of medical imaging results.

Research information:

I study how nonlinear systems can generate unpredictable behaviour including chaos. I also study how this behaviour is influenced by various sources of noise such as environmental fluctuations. This research is applied to the neurosciences, where I seek to understand how our senses code information about the outside physical world, and to unravel the secrets of the codes used by the brain. It is also applied to physiological variability such as that of heart rate and breathing rate in health and disease, using also nonlinear time series methods. My mathematical models make predictions about experimental outcomes in my colleagues' neurobiological and clinical laboratories. I am interested finally in plasticity and memory formation, neurotransmitter balance in mental health, the role of feedback between brain areas, and the behaviours of neurons under trauma.
