    Mr Brandon Peri

    University Position
    Research Assistant


    I am broadly interested in how the brain integrates information from across different sensory modalities to form stable, high-fidelity representations of the external world. As a research assistant with the Keshavarzi lab, I am currently building bespoke experimental set-ups and developing custom software for data acquisition, processing and analysis. Ultimately, I will be using these tools to conduct experiments that interrogate the neural circuits underlying spatial orientation and self-motion perception in rodents.
