Research Description

Curtis Neveu investigates the cellular and physiological mechanisms underlying behavior and decision making using Aplysia as a model organism. He uses a multilevel approach including a pharmacological and electrophysiological characterization of the channels of key neurons within the circuit, voltage sensitive dyes to record spike activity of 100s of neurons simultaneously, and carbon fiber arrays to directly stimulate these neurons. He then incorporates this information into a computation model of the neurocircuit.
