Welcome to the Franken Lab!

How does the brain make sense of what you see? We study how brain circuits organize incoming sensory information into meaningful collections of objects and background.

About us

The lab is led by Tom Franken, MD, PhD, in the Department of Neuroscience at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.
