Research Interests I am interested in how neurons process inputs and how networks of neurons process information. Currently I am doing phase response analysis of a morphologically realistic, multicompartmental globus pallidus neuron model. I hope to use a convergence of modeling and brain slice electrophysiology to elucidate mechanisms of synchronization in neuronal populations, with application to oscillations and synchronizations that emerge in the basal ganglia with Parkinson's disease.
