The main goal of this lab is to understand the underlying neural activities in the brain and to model the mechanisms that cause these activities. Research in this area is mainly focused on the following topics:

  • Spiking neurons and spiking neural networks
  • Learning rules and mechanisms in spiking neural networks
  • Modeling the synaptic delays
  • Modeling the roles of feedforward and feedback connections
  • Invariant object recognition
  • Face processing
  • Motion perception
  • Modeling the mechanisms of decision making
