Project summary

Professor Carandini is interested in understanding how the brain processes visual information. To do this he records the brain activity of mice while they navigate a virtual environment, and looks at the activity of both single and multiple neurons in populations. During his award he will be seeking, alongside Professor Harris, to understand how the brain integrates signals from multiple sensory streams and both sensory and non-sensory modalities.
