Dr. Tirin Moore's laboratory studies neural mechanisms of visual-motor integration and the neurophysiological basis of cognition (e.g. visual attention, visual awareness, and working memory). This research involves the study of the activity of single neurons in visual and motor structures within the primate brain and tests of how perturbing that activity affects neurons in other brain structures as well as how it affects the perceptual and motor performance of behaving animals. The Moore laboratory is also driven to develop more powerful and more causal approaches to systems-level neurobiology.
Questions currently addressed by Dr. Moore's lab include:
The group is also driven to develop more powerful approaches to systems-level neurobiological questions.
