I am fascinated by many questions addressing the mechanics of the brain. How are stimuli represented and associated, and how is experience encoded? How are memories consolidated? How are memories appropriately accessed and retrieved to guide behaviour? How are behaviours instructed? We now think some of these complex processes can be controlled by manipulating small groups or even single neurons.
