Brain mapping

Kevin is interested in how ensembles of neurons encode behavior across multiple time and spatial scales. In the central nervous system, time and space appear to be coupled across micro-, meso-, and macroscopic scales, for instance in the form of local circuits, propagating waves of activity, and large networks. He would like to understand how neurons interact within and across these scales. Previously, he worked in the laboratories of Callum Ross and Nicholas Hatsopoulos at the University of Chicago studying primate jaw and tongue coordination in the orofacial region of primary motor cortex, and local field potential wave propagation in the arm/hand region of primary motor cortex during a reach-to-grasp task.
