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.

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.

Psychological & Brain Sciences

Professor Gazzaniga is the Director of the SAGE Center for the Study of Mind at UCSB

Psychological & Brain Sciences

Professor Scott Grafton is interested in how people organize movement into goal-oriented action.

Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology

Electrical and Computer Engineering

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

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.

Psychological & Brain Sciences

Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology

How does the brain control behavior?  We study the neural circuits that organize a flexible sequence of movements that remove dust from fruit flies.  Drosophila grooming behavior is a rich model for understanding how sensory inputs modify motor programs.  We use approaches from genetics, optogenetics, neuroethology and machine vision, and functional imaging of neural activity to decipher the logic and implementation of behavior sequences.  

Electrical and Computer Engineering

The lab of Spencer LaVere Smith (slslab.org) is investigating neural circuitry in action using novel instrumentation. One half of the lab is neuroengineering new instrumentation for measuring and manipulating neural activity. The other half of the lab is using the technology to perform experiments and gain insights into how neural circuitry processes stimuli and drives adaptive behavior.
