My laboratory is focused on the problem of how the nervous system controls its own sensory input in different behavioral states, and how this control can be disrupted in diseases of the central nervous system. The thalamus supports normal sensory perception as well as complex brain rhythms that can become disordered in CNS diseases. We are a translational neuroscience laboratory, examining complex questions using approaches ranging from studying the molecular biology of ion channels to studying epilepsy using human imaging methods.
