We study human intelligence, encompassing various aspects of cognitive functions traditionally studied separately in psychology and neuroscience: perception, attention, decision-making, learning, cognitive control, active sensing, economic choice, face processing, and social interactions. The lab mainly specializes in theoretical modeling, utilizing and developing a broad range of tools from Bayesian statistics, reinforcement learning, decision theory, control theory, information theory, game theory, and dynamical systems analysis. We also utilize various experimental methods, e.g. behavior, eye-tracking, fMRI, to help develop and validate the theoretical concepts. In addition, we collaborate with a number of experimentalists on a range of topics related to human and animal cognition, including neural and psychiatric impairments.
