Research Summary
My research applies a multi-modal, cognitive neuroscience-based approach to understanding decision-making, learning and representation in humans. I combine behavioural testing, computational modelling, neuroimaging (fMRI) and novel methods for studying neuromodulation in the human brain (human electrochemistry). These approaches allow me to characterise the cognitive processes that underpin behaviour and study their implementation in the brain – all the way from macro-scale changes in bulk neural activity to micro-scale changes in neuromodulator levels. A guiding principle of this work is that neurobiologically-informed computational accounts of human cognition and behaviour are critical for accurate classification, prediction and treatment of disorders of mental health.
