Goals:

The research in my lab focuses on investigating neural mechanisms underlying essential cognitive control functions,  such as visual attention, decision-making, and reward learning, and on developing novel and innovative approaches to improve our understanding and to enhance these essential functions.​

Research questions:

  • How do behavior goals shape visual processing?

  • What is the circuit organization in the frontoparietal network that mediates different cognitive control functions? How do different cortical areas within this network interact with each other? 

  • To what extend can we endogenously control different functional groups of neurons within the frontoparietal network? What is their impact on behavior?
