Stanley Laboratory Awarded New $1.9M NIH-NINDS BRAIN Initiative Award!

The laboratory of Prof. Garrett Stanley in the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University was awarded a 5 year, $1.9M grant through the “BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects – TargetedBCP” program. The title of the project is “Thalamocortical state control of tactile sensing: Mechanisms, Models, and Behavior”.  The team proposes to utilize an array of electrophysiological tools to measure and manipulate the circuits on fast time scales, to determine the role the thalamus has in dynamically gating information flow to the rest of the brain during changes in states of arousal.
