Area(s) of Expertise

Research Interests

Prof. O’Malley is intrigued by the processing of information by neuronal populations. In particular, Prof. O’Malley would like to understand how circuit-level neural architectures enable sensorimotor transformations and intelligent animal behaviors. His research lab uses confocal microscopy and high-speed behavioral imaging to establish the neural basis of the surprisingly diverse repertoire of locomotor behaviors exhibited by larval zebrafish (many of which were discovered here at Northeastern University).
