Connecting Brain to Mind with Computational Neuroscience

Recently, some of the neuronal correlates of high level cognitive functions, such as decision making, working memod attention, have been uncovered. Neurophysiologists, powered with new recording techniques, are obtaining crucial information about the neuronal mechanisms that underlay the perception of the objects, confidence in our decisions or our perception of time. With these neuronal recording techniques, we are for the first time in a position to unravel some of the complex mechanisms that underlay basic psychological phenomena.

 
In our lab we combine cognitive and computational neuroscience with the analysis of neuronal and behavioural data to understand how neuronal dynamics underlies cognitive functions, such as perception and decision making, and to describe complex multielectrode recording neuronal data. Given the broad scope of the problems that we face and the variety of methods required, our lab is multidisciplinary, involving techniques from psychology, physics, mathematics and neuroscience.
