Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Dr. Angelaki's laboratory is interested in the multisensory integration necessary for self-motion perception, spatial orientation and the control of movement. Specifically they study the processing of visual and vestibular spatiotemporal information, and how such information is used to generate neural representations of space as a function of time. They seek to understand how multi-sensory information is processed, integrated and transformed into either commands for movement or perceptual decisions. The tools they use involve both computational and experimental approaches, including behavioral analyses, single unit recording and microstimulation/inactivation of different brain regions of macaque monkeys in the brainstem, cerebellum, thalamus and the cortex.
