Our research focuses on understanding the brain using computational models and simulations, and applying this knowledge to the task of building intelligent robotic systems and brain-computer interfaces (BCIs). We utilize data and techniques from a variety of fields, ranging from neuroscience and psychology to machine learning and statistics. Current efforts are directed at: (1) understanding probabilistic information processing and learning in the brain, (2) building biologically-inspired robots that can learn through experience and imitation, and (3) developing interfaces for controlling computers and robots using brain- and muscle-related signals.
