WELCOME TO THE KAUFMAN LAB

Overview of our research

Our lab at the University of Chicago focuses on how cortical circuits work together to make decisions and generate movements. Using mice, we combine innovation in behavioral paradigms together with two-photon imaging, optogenetics, electrophysiology, and video tracking to produce rich behavioral and neural data. We then develop new mathematical methods to understand how brain areas generate the signals needed to command behavior.

We are currently looking to hire a postdoc. Please contact Matt directly if interested.
