Lesica Lab

Our research group is working to understand the neural circuitry that underlies sensory perception. We perform experiments that allow us to observe how different sensory inputs are transformed into different neural activity patterns, and we build models to replicate the transformations that we observe.

Understanding how brain activity represents information about the outside world has been cited as one of the grand research challenges of the 21st century, and is essential not only for basic science, but also for developing therapeutic and prosthetic approaches to replacing brain function that has been lost to trauma or disease, as well as for creating intelligent artificial systems for tasks such as speech recognition.
