Dr. Calabrese's primary interest is in the production of stable, functional motor patterns by neuronal networks, despite varying conditions. His lab has spent over twenty years characterizing the pattern-generating network generating heartbeats in leeches, building detailed computational models of the network involved. Recently, the lab has begun to study the reflection of their network models' parameters space in the synaptic variability between leeches, and testing model predictions using dynamic clamp methods.
