Wang Professor and Founding Chairman of Cognitive and Neural Systems; Professor of Mathematics, Psychology, and Biomedical Engineering; Director of Center for Adaptive Systems; CELEST PI and Chairman of the CELEST Board of Directors. Research: I develop brain models of vision and visual object recognition; audition, speech, and language; development; attentive learning and memory; cognitive information processing; reinforcement learning and motivation; cognitive-emotional interactions; navigation; sensory-motor control and robotics; and mental disorders. These models involve many parts of the brain, ranging from perception to action, and multiple levels of brain organization, ranging from individual spikes and their synchronization to cognition. I also carry out analyses of the mathematical dynamics of neural systems, and transfer biological neural models to applications in neuromorphic engineering and technology.
