We study how different types of inhibitory interneurons are optimised for controlling neural codes.

In collaboration with Dr Tim Vogels and Prof Simon Butt we investigate how local, inhibitory circuits form during development. We work with Prof Radu Aricescu and his lab on developing novel tools for studying inhibitory interneurons. Together with Prof Blake Richards and Prof Jeehyun Kwag, we implement a multidisciplinary approach combining cellular, systems, behavioural and theoretical neuroscience, aimed at understanding the mechanisms by which rate and temporal codes could coexist in the brain and establishing an approach for artificially biasing neural activity towards rate or temporal codes.
