About David Devilbiss

My current research is focused on understanding the neuromodulation-related changes in neural coding that underlies flexible cognitive and behavioral functions. We use a variety of techniques including single neuron and multichannel electrophysiology, computational neuroscience, neuropharmacology, neurochemistry, anatomy, and behavioral techniques to interrogate the regulation of information processing across large networks of neurons in awake and behaving rats with normal cognitive function, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), stress. In addition, the lab is building on emerging evidence linking the LC-NE system in the cognitive sequelae of concussion and mild-traumatic brain injury as well as back-translating recent work in industry on concussion diagnostics.
