Berg Lab

The research focus of the Berg lab has been to combine quantitative approaches of mathematics and physics with experiments using electrophysiology, genetics, tissue clearing and other biological tools to better understand the nervous system especially the motor system.

Developing a theory on how brains work

Neuroscience does not have, as physics does, a standard model that serves as a conceptual structure in which gaps of knowledge and inconsistencies can be isolated and serve as impetus for experiments, technological improvements or elaborate calculations. The purpose of this project is to produce conceptual frameworks that could develop into a “standard model of the functions of mammalian brains”. The project will try to identify the gaps in our experimental knowledge of brain dynamics at all scales of observation and bridge them by plausible hypotheses. The strategy is to identify crucial questions for brain science and produce experimentally testable hypotheses as parts of overriding conceptual, biophysical, molecular and to some extent mathematical framework.
