Kohl Lab Research

Although we know approximately how sensory input is routed through different brain areas, each extracting distinct aspects of the percept, the neuronal language used to represent sensory experiences and the mechanisms whereby these experiences are stored in memory remain elusive.

Our group tries to unravel the neural coding strategies employed in the representation of sensory stimuli and memory storage. We combine electrophysiological recordings with single- and multi-photon imaging and stimulation to monitor and manipulate complex neuronal activity during behaviour in mice. Our ultimate aim is to discover fundamental neural coding principles underlying perception and memory.
