    The goal of my lab is to understand how networks of connected neurons interact to organize complex behaviors. To do this, we investigate how neuronal sensorimotor circuits in the brainstem control innate behaviors, and how higher order brain structures engage these circuits to appropriately regulate these behaviors. The laboratory uses a combination of molecular, systems, and theoretical neurobiological techniques to address these important topics.
