Welcome to Our Lab!

Our lab's research is focused on discovering basic neurobiological mechanisms that support human cognition and human decision-making.

These basic questions guide our work:

(1) How does activity in the human brain give rise to human experience, human beliefs, and human choice behavior? 

(2) How does the environment and social interaction modulate these processes? 

(3) How can we use answers to these questions to improve the quality of life of all humans, but especially those that suffer from neurological and psychiatric conditions?
