Dr. Simon R. Schultz is a Professor of Neurotechnology at Imperial College London, a Director at the Imperial Centre of Excellence in Neurotechnology, and a Head of the Laboratory of Neural Coding and Neurodegenerative Disease at Imperial College London. Prof. Schultz is widely recognized for developing quantitative, information-theoretic algorithms for the analysis of large neurophysiological datasets, with key highly cited papers on the roles of spike timing and correlations in sensory coding. Research in his group focuses on studying sensory and cognitive neural codes and how they relate to cortical circuit function and dysfunction. A current focus in the lab is on using optical techniques to probe neural circuit function, with a major project underway on using these techniques to study memory disorders.
