Dr. Sommer’s research is focused on neuronal circuits in the brain. Investigations in his laboratory here at Duke center on stimulating and rendering inactive certain areas of the brain in order to better understand how these areas process signals and interact with each other to produce human behavior and cognition. His 2015 article “Studying Metacognitive Processes at the Single-Neuron Level” and many more are freely available for download in the DukeSpace open access repository.
