We study pattern generation and homeostatic regulation in small neural networks with a combination of computational and experimental approaches. Our small neural network of choice is the pyloric pattern-generating circuit in the stomatogastric ganglion of the lobster, one of the best-characterized neural networks in biology.

Current research projects include the computational exploration of homeostatic regulatory mechanisms in neural circuits, the construction, visualization and analysis of high-dimensional model datasets, and the investigation of synchronization in networks of neural oscillators with hybrid network techniques.
