Summary of Research for Dr. Maurice J. Chacron

 

Affiliation

Departement of Physics, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Research Description:

Dr. Chacron's research focuses on the mechanisms by which neurons transmit information about incoming sensory input (e.g. speech, visual) and how this information is decoded by higher order neurons, thereby leading to behavior. Multiple approaches are combined in order to achieve this goal including electrophysiological recordings from neurons in awake behaving animals, computational data analysis, and mathematical modeling of single neurons and neural networks, and behavior.
