We are a group of neuroscientists who approach the study of the brain from the point of view of the behavioural and cognitive function of distributed neural systems. We approach the function of those neural systems using molecular, cellular and population level anatomical, computational and dynamic imaging methods in relation to behaviour and cognition.
Our goal is to understand the cellular and molecular and computation processes involved in normal and abnormal neuro-information processing in functional systems. We accomplish this through a collaborative approach to discovery.
We have specific interests in the following problems:
- Functional organization of long-term memory – McDonald, McNaughton, Sutherland
- Experiential and hormonal factors in development of brain and behaviour – Gibb, Kolb, Iwaniuk, Metz, Pellis
- Brain repair – Gibb, Kolb, Metz, Luczak, Sutherland
- Computation approach to biological information processing – Luczak, Gruber, McNaughton, Tatsuno
- Development of novel neuro-technology – McNaughton, Tata, Tatsuno
- Cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging – Sutherland, Tata
