The Banks Laboratory is interested in how sensory stimuli are represented in the firing patterns of cells in the neocortex, and how general anesthetics disrupt this coding process. The auditory system of mice and rats is used as a model system to pursue these questions using electrophysiological techniques in vitro and electrophysiological and behavioral techniques in vivo.
