Research Interests

The neuronal activity underlying mammalian spatial navigation represents one of the most striking examples of behavioral correlation in the brain. Professor Dombeck is interested in the cellular and circuit mechanisms responsible for the neuronal activity that allows mammals to navigate and find their way to specific destinations. To accomplish this, his research team develops and applies novel optical and genetic techniques to perform cellular and subcellular resolution imaging and manipulation of neuronal population activity in mice navigating in virtual reality environments. By understanding the navigation circuitry, they hope to extract general principles about neuronal population dynamics in behaving mammals.
