Research Statement

Active Sensation:
This program addresses how the vibrissa sensorimotor system of rat extracts a stable world view through its actively moving sensors.

Neocortical Microcirculation and Microinfarctions:
This program explores the topology, dynamics, and neuronal control of cortical blood flow at the level of networks down to that of single capillaries.

The Murine Angiotome:
This program seeks a vectorized map of all blood vessels, anterioles, venules, and capillaries, and all cell bodies, both neuronal and nonneuronal, in the mouse brain.
