David Gire Receives UW Innovation Award
Psychology Assistant Professor David Gire and his collaborator Biology Assistant Professor Bing Brunton have received a UW Innovation Award to develop cutting-edge technology and new mathematical approaches to understand how the brain works during complex behaviors such as navigating and searching for food. Through this award, Drs. Gire and Brunton will study cognitive functions of the brain, which integrate multiple abilities including perception, decision-making, and memory. Their work represents a new collaboration for the University of Washington with the non-profit Open Ephys, an organization that supports the free distribution of data and open source development of technology for use in labs throughout the world.
