The Computational Neurobiology Group is engaged in collaborative explorations of the functioning of neurons and networks, using both invertebrate and vertebrate model systems. Based at the University of Missouri (MU), our neuroscience collaborators include faculty from MU and other institutions.
The group employs graduate and undergraduate students, and post-docs to work on computational modeling research, in close collaboration with neuroscientists:
- cellular level: neural correlates of fear and extinction memories
- cellular level: preservation of neuronal and network function in ganglions
- celullar level: neuroadaptations in the PFC-NAc perisynapse due to cocaine
- intra-cellular level: LTP/LTD in the accumbal PSD due to cocaine
- behavioral level: emergent anti-predator behavior in a colony of insects
