Carlos Pedreira


Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a post-doctoral researcher in the Brain and Behaviour Research Group.

My primary interest is in the understanding of how the neuronal activity can enable the implementation of the most complex tasks, such as the recognition of a person, memory recollection, or the learning of complex tasks and rules.

In my current position I focus on the neural substrate of decision making within frontal cortical areas. I am studying the processes supporting the emergence of a single and unified behaviour using multi-site neurophysiological recordings of the frontal cortex during complex tasks. I am interested in both the specific role of each particular region and the mechanisms allowing communication between different areas in the frontal cortex.  Complementary, I am also interested in how these processes regulate and modify the activity of perception areas for an optimal performance of different tasks.
