Hello reader, welcome to the Humphries’ lab. We are a neural data lab: we analyse neuroscience data to test computational theories for how brains work. To do this, we often have to create new analysis approaches; and we build models of neurons and circuits to test the match between theories and data. As a purely computational lab, we are at liberty to have looser rules than our experimental colleagues. This manual lays out how the lab works, and the expectations of everyone within it.

The public faces of the lab can be found here:
