Dmitri "Mitya" Chklovskii combines theoretical and experimental tools to reverse engineer the brain. His group reconstructs the brain's wiring diagram and quantitatively formulates neuronal structure-function relationships.

By mapping the brain's form, in particular, the wiring of its neuronal circuits, Dmitri Chklovskii seeks to understand its function—how trillions of electrical impulses make us move, talk, think, and feel.
