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
