My research experience began as a graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Karl Pribram at Radford University, where I studied the representation of somatosensory information at the level of the central nervous system. My thesis work employed multi-electrode electrophysiology to evaluate the representation of rat’s vibrissal cues in the barrel cortex, an anatomically distinct brain area corresponding to the facial whiskers. I found that spectral and spatiotemporal approaches best account for texture discrimination and receptive field properties, such as directional selectivity. This work laid the foundation for my longstanding interest in sensory processes.
