Welcome to Walker Lab!

Walker lab is a member of the Computational Neuroscience Center seated in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at the University of Washington.

In Walker lab, we study how the brain forms a model of the rich sensory world to combine complex sensory observations with the world knowledge to achieve decision-making and behavior.

Walker lab's interests lie in identifying how the brain combines complex, multi-modal sensory information with the knowledge of the world to arrive at decisions.

Specifically, our work has focused on understanding how a population of sensory cortical neurons encodes sensory stimulus information, including the associated uncertainty, and how this information propagates to the rest of the brain to ultimately arrive at a decision.
