Sommer investigates the theoretical principles of learning and perception and their biological bases in the circuit dynamics of the brain. To study these issues he develops computational models, advanced techniques of data analysis, and strategies for sharing neurophysiology data. He is also interested in neurobiological design principles for building artificial intelligence systems.
