Current Study

My general interest lies in understanding how different types of neurons influence circuit dynamics, the impact of state-dependent network activity on sensory processing, and how it affects perception and action. My current works focus on 1) the role of different types of GABAergic interneurons in cortical circuit and 2) neuromodulation of GABAergic interneurons in neocortex.
