We study the neural underpinnings of stimulus selection, attention, decision-making and affective behaviors. 

We are particularly interested in elucidating specialized versus general principles of neural design for these functions.  One of our long-term goals is to uncover the neural circuit mechanisms driving their altered operation in neuro-atypical states such as ADHD, schizophrenia, autism, and addiction. Another is to develop neurally inspired algorithms and architectures for AI applications.


To advance neuroscience discovery by uniting neuroscience, engineering and computational data science to understand the structure and function of the brain.
