Welcome to the NRD lab!

Research in the Neuroscience of Reinforcement learning and Decision making (NRD) Lab mixes theoretical and computational modeling, psychophysics, pupillometry, EEG, fMRI and TMS to probe the neuroscience of learning and decision making in humans. Our questions include:
  • How do we decide when to try something new and unknown (explore) over something old and familiar (exploit)?
  • How do we learn in the presence of change?
  • Why do we make mistakes? And how can we learn from them?
