Members of the Team:
The group is interested in understanding the neural mechanisms underlying the generation and execution of behavior. Our approach is multi-level, ranging from molecular, cellular and circuit to the ecological and evolutionary factors that may have influenced the expression of the current form of behavior.
From the scientific perspective , the group's activity has historically focused on the physiology of the oculomotor system, in which has characterized the different types of eye movements that occur during different brain states and the activity of different motor and premotor neuronal groups involved in controlling these eye movements.
The main current research fields are the following:
From a technology perspective, the group handles special techniques for the characterization of behavioral, electrophysiological, histological, histochemical and mathematical modeling. From that perspective, the group has produced several different research equipment and specific software for the analysis of biological signals.
