Todd Troyer's Nature News & Views piece named as the Neuroscience Editors' Choice for 2013.


Nature is the pre-eminent publisher of peer-reviewed research in all fields of science and technology. Nature also provides rapid and insightful news and interpretation of current trends affecting science, scientists and the wider public.  

Troyer's 2013 piece, Neuroscience: The units of a song,  outlines an important debate in the field of motor coding of birdsong.

Dr. Troyer is Associate Professor of Biology, and a member of The UTSA Neurosciences Institute.  His laboratory uses theory and computation to study the neural basis of how birds learn to sing and how dynamic information is encoded and processed in brain circuits.
