The overall goal of my research is to understand the brain organization in the primary sensory areas, particularly the primary visual cortex of human and non-human primates. I study the distribution of the neurons and their connections, the synapses, to get accurate estimation of the number and morphological characteristic of both brain components. Accurate estimations of neurons and synapses are crucial to build realistic computer models of the brain. I use different neuroanatomical techniques, including confocal microscopy and electron microscopy in 3D.
