Lyle Muller's research centers on developing new approaches to analyze and model large-scale recordings of neural population dynamics in cortex. After studying computational neuroscience at Brown University, Lyle completed a PhD in computational and theoretical neuroscience with Alain Destexhe (CNRS Gif-sur-Yvette). He then moved to San Diego for postdoctoral research with Terry Sejnowski in the Computational Neurobiology Laboratory (CNL) at the Salk Institute. In 2019, he started a research group in computational neuroscience at Western University, in the Department of Applied Mathematics and the Brain and Mind Institute. At Western, his group conducts analysis- and model-driven research in collaboration with colleagues in systems and clinical neuroscience.
