Goard Lab part of collaborative NIH Brain Initiative R01 grant

New Research Funding

May 14, 2021

New Brain Initiative R01 in collaboration with PIs Cris Niell (University of Oregon) and Spencer Smith (UCSB), and co-Investigator Michael Beyeler (UCSB).

The award, entitled "Cortical visual processing for navigation", will be used to study how visual signals are transformed as they transition from visual brain regions to spatial brain regions. To study this, the group will use 2-photon imaging and electrophysiology to measure neural activity in mice navigating through real world and virtual environments. They will then use data-driven computational approaches to analyze the data and generate predictive models. We look forward to getting started!
