Welcome to the website of the Fairhall group. We are members of the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Washington. The group develops theoretical approaches to understand processing in nervous systems. We collaborate closely with experimental labs to uncover algorithms of information processing in a range of systems, from single neurons to foraging mosquitoes to navigating primates.
