Freely moving decision making - Using a novel large cage testing apparatus, we record behavior using 62 cameras and electrophysiology using a neurologger and ask how brain activity relates to foraging behavior.
Neuroengineering - We are interested in understanding and improving neuromodulatory approaches to psychiatry, especially self-control. We have funded projects to understand steerable current electrodes, tACS, and the relationship between hemodynamic responses and spiking activity.
Value, self-control, and curiosity - We are interested in understanding the neural basis of volitional choice. Our research involves unit recording in prefrontal and striatal regions during carefully designed laboratory tasks.
