Researcher interests: We are interested in understanding the neural mechanisms of decision-making. In particular, we aim to identify specific brain regions and activity patterns that mediate the selection of particular actions over others, the learning processes that lead to these preferences, and the ways that animals’ internal motivational states modulate such preferences.
