Current Projects

In the Palmer Laboratory, we are always working on new interesting projects.

At the moment we are investigating the following: 

  • Dendritic activity during reward-based behaviour

  • Neural activity underlying fear learning

  • The influence of the thalamus on cortical activity during reward-based behaviour

  • The effects of cocaine on the cortical processing of sensory information

  • Prefrontal input to primary somatosensory cortex during frequency discrimination.

  • Neural activity in the striatum during sensory processing

  • The integrative properties of human neurons

  • Multi-sensory integration
