Research topics: Our lab seeks to understand distributed computations and neural circuits that drive dynamic, complex behavior, mainly focusing social interactions.
Techniques: We use large-scale neuronal recordings across multiple brain regions combined with deep brain stimulation techniques, optogenetics, brain-machine interface and advanced data analyses, machine learning and modeling techniques to complement game-theory driven behavioral paradigms. Other current projects require developing machine vision and deep learning tools for freely moving video tracking and analysis, respectively.
Seeking undergrads for: Academic year, Summer
Required skills: Neuroscience or computational background is a plus
This lab is particularly interested in mentoring: Undergrads from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM, Undergrads without previous exposure to laboratory research, any students with profound interest in neurophysiology
How to apply: Contact Dr. Haroush (email@example.com)
Project information: Many current projects are available, depending on the interest and skill set of the student. One example of a mentored project includes uncovering the neural circuits of altruistic behavior.
