theoretical and computational neuroscience research

Our long-term goal is to investigate and understand the key issue of neural control of movement: how different cellular, network and systems neural mechanisms are integrated across multiple levels of organization to produce motor behavior and to adapt this behavior to various external and internal conditions.

 

brainstem neural mechanisms responsible for neural control of breathing and neural circuits in the spinal cord

Investigations of the brainstem neural mechanisms responsible for neural control of breathing and neural circuits in the spinal cord involved in control of locomotion provide a unique and attractive opportunity to develop and investigate comprehensive computational models that can bring into a uniform framework the existing experimental data and current hypotheses related to different levels of systems organization and behavior.
