My research explores the exaggerated sensory structure of the rat vibrissal array as a model to better understand sensorimotor behaviors and the neural basis of tactile perception. My project utilizes mathematical, statistical, and computational methods to investigate how rats neurologically integrate mechanical information across their whiskers during active sensing.
