Principal Investigator: Jonathan Pillow


Our lab develops theoretical tools for understanding neural systems and the computations they perform. We build statistical models of neural activity with an emphasis on generalized linear point process models, functional connectivity, dimensionality reduction / subspace identification, latent dynamical models, active learning, information theory, and nonparametric Bayesian models and inference methods. We seek to understand how neural populations process visual information and to discover the normative principles underlying the brain's unique perceptual capabilities.
