I am studying somatosensory integration in the whisker system of the rodent. Mainly this consists of providing a model for each structure which process sensory data retrieved by the whisker based on physiological data. The idea is to be able to predict neural activity based on physical transformations of the vibrissae (encoding), then from this neural activity, build back the stimulus which produced this neural activity (decoding).
