Morris Laboratory

Computational and Sensorimotor Neuroscience

Welcome to the Morris Lab

Our research seeks to understand how neural networks in the brain create our sensory experience and control movements of the body.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Neuroscience Program and
the Department of Physiology.

Our research

Up close, the brain is a swirling sea of electrical signals, some carrying sensory information about the scene in front of the eyes, others forming thoughts, decisions, and intended actions. Our research seeks to make sense of these signals and to understand the brain as a “computation-machine” for perception and behaviour. This knowledge will help us repair the brain when it becomes damaged, treat mental illness, and build better, smarter technologies.

  • Eye movements and vision: how does the visual system make sense of images that arise from moving eyes?

  • Neural coding and decision-making: how does the brain code information about the outside world and plan action?

  • Learning and brain plasticity: how does the brain re-format neural signals during learning or recovery?
