  • Research:  Macaque monkeys have a diverse social structure, and we are hoping to understand this structure better from analysis of amygdala electrode recordings taken when the monkeys faces were touched by various socially familiar and unfamiliar objects (human touch, puffs of air, ect.). We are using a variety of machine learning techniques from linear algebra and neural network theory to analyze both mean-field and neural spike data in time and space.
