The Palmer Laboratory

Individual neurons are continuously bombarded with thousands of synaptic inputs which must integrate to generate an internal representation of the external environment. Our goal is to understand how these inputs are received and transformed by neurons and how this processing contributes to perception and behaviour.

We investigate how the brain processes sensory information by measuring the activity of neurons within the neocortex. In particular, we measure the activity of dendrites, which actively transform synaptic inputs into neuronal output.
