Lab Overview

We are interested in understanding how the brain uses different types of information to guide our behavior.  We use mathematical models of cognition to relate observed behavior to underlying cognitive processes, and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to relate these processes to different systems in the brain.  Our primary focus is on understanding how the brain uses constructs like memory, emotion, and attention to adapt the way decisions are made.  The goal is to better understand basic decision processes in healthy adults, and use this information to investigate maladaptive decision-making that is often associated with different psychopathologies (e.g., depression).
