Reverse engineering cognition: from neural circuits to psychiatry

The long-term goal of the Kepecs laboratory is to reverse engineer the computational and neurobiological processes underlying cognition and decision-making. We aim to identify the neural processes underlying specific behavioral capacities in rodent models of cognition using the state-of-the-art tools of circuit neuroscience. We also seek insights into what goes awry in the brain during neurological disorders to build a bridge from animal studies to humans.
