Research Abstract
Dr. Granger's research in computational biology centers on analyses of brain circuit design, and development of novel algorithms and devices based on these analyses. Theoretical and practical studies have shown the utility of the results, which have been published in respected venues including Proceedings of the National Academy, and Science, and have led to a series of patents and products. In addition, his research into the underlying neurobiology of learning has led to the discovery of novel neurobiological drugs, and their effects in a series of preclinical and clinical trials. Dr. Granger has authored more than 90 scholarly publications.
