Our laboratory studies brain-wide neural circuits, which emerge movement and thought. Applying two-photon imaging, optogenetics, and electrophysiology to behaving mice and marmosets, we measure and manipulate the activities of thousands of neurons and analyze their dynamics.

E Parieto-frontal circuits for motor execution through thought and decision-making.
E Neural circuits for motor learning (the cortico-basal ganglia loop and cortico-cerebellar loop).
E Neural circuits for motor learning without body movement (brain-machine-interface).
E Development of novel optical techniques.
