The Sober lab, in collaboration with Dr. Ilya Nemenman’s group, is awarded a 4-year Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS) grant from the National Science Foundation to study how the nervous system generates motor variability.
This award will support the development (in collaboration with the lab of Dr. Muhannad Bakir at Georgia Tech) of new technologies for recording electrical activity from the motor system during skilled behavior in rodents and songbirds.
