Dr. Stay's lab examines sensorimotor signaling and control in the vestibulo-ocular circuit, utilizing high-density in vivo electrophysiology, genetic circuit manipulation, and behavioral testing to determine how sensory inputs are processed to accurately drive motor output. Rapid adaptation in the circuit is used as a model of motor learning and consolidation that could reflect more general principles of learning and forgetting in the brain. Additionally, detailed understanding of circuit function could one day help lead to vestibular prosthetics. Undergraduate researchers at any level of experience are encouraged to express interest.
