Research topic:

  • Reinforcement learning and Decision-making
  • Goal-directed behavior
  • Cognitive control and executive functions
  • Attention-deficit/Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

Research methods:

  • Computational modeling of behavior (drift-diffusion modelling, reinforcement learning algorithms)
  • Behavioral Measurements (choice, reaction-times, response-force)
  • EEG / MEG

Projects in the lab include:

  • Addressing core learning and decision-making processes (e.g., model-based vs. model-free learning), and how they underlay psychopathology (ADHD/OCD)
  • Describing neural representation using EEG/MEG decoding
  • Novel diagnosis measures for ADHD and OCD
