The lab's ongoing research investigates the influence of memories on behavior.
Specific projects in progress examine the roles of episodic and working memory in decisions for reward, perceptual inference, drug choice and addiction, and intertemporal choices, using computational model-driven analysis of behavior and brain activity (via fMRI, but with plans for EEG and other modalities).
We're hiring! If you're interested in working in the lab - as a research assistant, lab manager, or postdoc - please send me a brief (~2 paragraph) message describing your research interests.
Include a CV and email addresses of up to three references.
Postdoc candidates should include two or three relevant manuscripts (preprints are ok).

Rats exhibit similar biases in foraging and intertemporal choice tasks.
