Rubin's Research



Dr. Rubin works on both theoretical and applied problems coming from neuroscience, as well as on inflammation and related medical issues, in collaboration with students, postdocs, and medical school faculty. In the neuroscience area, Dr. Rubin's research focuses on transitions in activity patterns in respiratory pacemaker networks, tremor and deep brain stimulation for movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, spike-timing dependent synaptic plasticity, and traveling waves in neuronal media. Many of his projects fall into the general theme of spatio-temporal pattern formation in coupled cell networks.
