The goal of the Emanuel laboratory is to build a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles underlying signal processing in the somatosensory system.

The sense of touch is integral to our everyday lives. We seamlessly integrate information about the tactile world with remarkable speed and precision to generate perceptions and guide our actions. How does the brain accomplish this?

They investigate this question using mouse genetic tools, modern neurophysiological approaches, and computational modeling.
