    Title:
    WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING AT? IMAGING ACTIVITY IN THE FREELY MOVING ANIMAL, FROM THE EYE TO THE CORTEX.
    Abstract:
    I will outline work from our group that focuses on how rodents use their vision while freely moving and how this this translates to cortical activity. I will introduce methods that allow accurate recording of neuronal activity from populations of cortical neurons, using multiphoton imaging techniques, while simultaneously tracking behavior, using eye and head tracking techniques, during decision making in the freely moving rodent.
