Dmitry Rinberg, from the Department of Neuroscience and Physiology of the NYU Neuroscience Institute in New York, US, is using electrophysiology, optogenetics, and psychophysics to understand the principles of the sensory information processing. In an effort to establish causal connection between neuronal coding and animal behaviour he focuses specifically on two how odour information is coded in the mouse brain and how the information relevant to animal behaviour is extracted by the brain.

He has been invited by Matthieu Louis (CRG).
