    Dr. Schwartz’s laboratory is working at the frontier of systems neuroscience to reveal how the biophysical properties of neurons and the pattern and characteristics of their synaptic connections give rise to a functional neural circuit. He is using new techniques to classify cell types and measure anatomical connectivity, synaptic properties, and circuit output all in the same neurons. He has developed a new theoretical framework to integrate these measurements into a model to predict circuit function given its natural input. processing.
