Professor Moxon’s lab studies how the brain encodes information. They use a brain-machine interface system to record neural activity while an animal performs a task and then use the neural activity to control microstimulation that can alter the behavior of the animal. The lab is especially interested in cognitive functions involved in motor planning, learning and decision making. This work has potential applications in restoring function after neurological injury or disease.
