Timothy Gentner

Professor of Psychology

The Gentner lab explores the neural mechanisms that govern the sensory, perceptual, motor, and cognitive processing of natural sounds, especially animal communication signals. Research topics address questions of neural coding, representational plasticity, high-level decision mechanisms, and motor control of natural behavior. Researchers in the lab develop skills in electrophysiology, neuroanatomy, and animal behavior to address their interests in computationally rigorous ways.
