Research Interests

We study fundamental brain mechanisms involved in learning, motivation and decision-making. To achieve this we develop and use advanced tools and devices for monitoring neural activity and neuromodulator dynamics. These include silicon probes with sub-micron features for dense sampling of neuronal activity, and optical sensors for dopamine.
