Welcome to the Ditterich Lab at the Center for Neuroscience, University of California, Davis. We are a neuroscience laboratory working on discovering the neural mechanisms that are responsible for linking perception and action. Our laboratory uses a variety of techniques, including analysis of behavior, electrophysiology, and computational modeling.
