Research

Work in the Mason lab focuses on sensory processes underlying communication and decision-making. Our goal is to understand the mechanisms by which the nervous system controls ongoing activity and how these mechanisms relate to behavioural adaptation. We use invertebrate model systems to identify basic principles of sensory integration of complex stimuli, mulit-modal communication, and how organisms adapt to biophysical constraints on these processes.
