Martin O'Neill

Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Brain and Behaviour Research Group.

My work focuses on the neuronal network dynamics underlying decision making.

I have previously shown that key parameters for decision making (e.g., value and risk) are encoded by single neurons in the frontal cortex.

I am advancing this work to further investigate how these parameters are encoded across populations of neurons within the frontal cortex and across other brain regions connected with the frontal cortex.

The aim is to understand the key parameters that inform and guide decision making mechanisms and how these decision making mechanisms are represented in the brain by both single neurons and across networks of neurons.
