Decision making and motor control in adaptive behaviour

My research interests lie in the fields of information processing in the prefrontal cortex, the premotor cortex, and the striatum, with a particular focus on the role of the midbrain dopaminergic system in signal integration in the striatum.

My current projects encompass three main lines of investigation:

  1. Action selection and motor control
  2. Reward-guided choice behaviour in an ambiguous environment (social or economic)
  3. Learning processes associated with changes in action-outcome contingencies

I am using either simultaneous dual-neuron recordings, fMRI tools, or Reinforcement Learning models in behaving macaque monkeys according to project requirement.

I aim to investigate learning-related changes in neuronal activities, with an emphasis on the following aspects:

  1. Functional organization of the striatum and its connectivity, related to information processing
  2. Signal processing in Basal Ganglia neuronal microcircuit
  3. Social and economic values processing in fronto-striatal functional connectivity
  4. Cortico-striatal functional connectivity during complex decisions
