Postdoctoral Research Fellow
- PhD (Cognitive Neuroscience)
I'm a neuroscientist interested in the neural basis of decision-making. During my PhD, I investigated the Brain Valuation System, a network involved in subjective valuation and decision-making processes through fMRI and iEEG in humans. My post-doctoral project is to closely investigate two subparts of the Brain Valuation System, the vmPFC and the OFC in various species of primates (including human) and rodents. The goal is to provide a complete overview of the morphology, connectivity and evolutional history of the central hub of value-based decision-making.
