We study the intricate cortical networks that implement decisions.
Our starting point is to break down complex behavior into the computations of a decision algorithm that we can study in humans and animals. We use novel tools in systems neuroscience in rodent models to measure large brain networks and formulate computational models of the cortex that are rooted in its underlying biological structure. By dissecting how dopamine and serotonin control brain function, we aim to understand adaptive – and maladaptive – behavior. Learn more. We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher funded by an ERC grant! Please get in touch
