Research Summary

I am interested in the computational principles employed by the brain to form decisions based on sensory input. At the moment, I investigate the role of mouse superior colliculus (SC) in visual decisions. I want to search for representations of the animal’s decision, performance, and task difficulty. My goal is to understand how visual cortices contribute to decision signals in SC and how other decision areas differ functionally from and interact with the SC.
