We're interested in dissecting brain circuit and function by recording, perturbing, and controlling neural activity with the combination of genetically encoded sensors and actuators, optical microscopy, and large scale computation. To accomplish these goals, we develop, characterize, and unify a set of tools under the umbrella of "NeuroToolbox".

Overall, we imagine the parallel development of engineered tools and neuroscience as providing positive feedback. The evolution along each dimension of the NeuroToolbox package will allow us to probe more outstanding questions in traditional neuroscience, and the development of neuroscience will spur additional developments in technology.
