My research is conducted in the Laboratory for Brain Research and Informational Sciences (BRAINS Lab) usually in collaboration with other faculty: Karl Pribram and Tom Pierce. Since ours is a teaching lab, Masters level graduate students and undergraduates conduct all the research in the lab. My research is conducted within either of two contexts:
The purpose of this research is to investigate the manner in which the brain represents and computes information that is input through the animal's whisker system. Click here for a list of theses that I have supervised in this area.

The purpose of this research is to explore the brain dynamics involved in voluntary and automatic attentional processes. We use the 128 electrode system developed by researchers at Electrical Geodesics in Eugene Oregon to conduct this research. Click here for a list of theses that I have supervised in this area.
