Professor
Psychological & Brain Sciences

Dr. Ashby directs the Laboratory for Computational Cognitive Neuroscience and is interested in basic cognitive and neural processes of human learning and memory.

Professor
Physics

Jean Carlson Condensed Matter Theoretical Physics investigates robustnes, tradeoffs, and feedback in complex, highly connected systems, and develops multi-scale models to capture important small-scale details and predict large-scale behavior.

Assistant Professor
Geography

The focus of Liz Chrastil's research is understanding how the brain supports spatial navigation.

Professor
Electrical and Computer Engineering

The main focus of our research is on new architectures and algorithms for next generation wireless communication and sensor networks.

Professor
Electrical and Computer Engineering

Research in image/video analysis (including texture and shape analysis, segmentation, registration), multimedia databases and data mining (feature extraction, content based access, high dimensional indexing and similarity search), steganography (data hiding in images and video, and their detection), and signal/image processing for bio-informatics.

Professor
Psychological & Brain Sciences

Professor
Mechanical Engineering

Reseach interest: Biological Dynamics; control of neural populations; natural and artificial swarms: schooling fish, flocking birds, etc- territorial behavior- coupled oscillators. Fluid Dynamics- shear flow turbulence. Mechanical Systems- theoretical analysis of individual and coupled MEMS devices; vibrational energy harvesting. Networks - information propagation through social networks; collective decision making. Dynamical Systems- bifurcation theory- canards.

Professor
Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology

A central question in neurobiology is defining the molecular and cellular mechanisms through which animals translate sensory input into behavioral outputs.

 

Professor
Computer Science

My primary research interests are in computer vision and imaging, human-computer interaction, machine learning, and augmented reality. I'm also interested in computation models of, and tools for, neuroscience.
