Our research program aims to elucidate the neural basis of cognitive processing using a combination of theoretical and experimental methods. We study the inter-related cognitive functions of decision-making, active perception, attentional selection, learning, cognitive control, as well as cognitive dysfunctions in psychiatry.
The theoretical tools we utilize include Bayesian probability theory, decision theory, stochastic control theory, information theory, and dynamical systems analysis. The experimental methods we employ include psychophysics, eyetracking, and functional brain imaging.
