Currently exploring how mice respond to specific visual information as a function of social hierarchy and early visual experiences. I am focusing on understanding the development of visually-guided behaviors among siblings.
Little is known about how the maturation of cortical versus subcortical circuits influences innate visual behaviors such as recognition of prey. I am investigating whether developmental changes in activity patterns of networks in the visual cortex versus the midbrain correlate with changes in approach and freezing behavior in mice.
R-rrrrrr: Fun with statistics!
