Kenneth Miller is the Co-director in the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, Neurobiology and Behavior at Unievrsity of Columbia, USA. He is professor of Neuroscience and Physiology and Cellular Biophysics; Principal Investigator at Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute.
In his lab, he uses theoretical and computational methods to unravel the circuitry of the cerebral cortex, the rules by which this circuitry develops or “self-organizes”, and the computational functions of this circuitry. His guiding hypothesis — motivated by the stereotypical nature of cortical circuitry across sensory modalities and, with somewhat more variability, across motor and “higher-order” cortical areas as well — is that there are fundamental computations done by the cortical circuit that are invariant across highly varying input signals.
While He was at UCSF, He also had an experimental component, focused on the study of the simultaneous activity of many neurons in visual cortex using the “tetrode” method of recording.
