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
  • The integrative properties of oblique dendrites 
  • Neural activity in the striatum during sensory processing
  • The integrative properties of human neurons
  • Multi-sensory integration
