My research interests are on the neural mechanisms of cognitive control and are developed in two broad axes. The first research axis is related to the organization of neural control systems in prefrontal and posterior association cortex, the second one is about age- and pathology-related changes in these control systems. I am currently working as a research fellow in Etienne Koechlins lab on the functional organization of prefrontal cortex in decision making. Using computational model-based analyses (Bayesian and reinforcement learning models) and functional connectivity analyses (psycho-physiological interaction), Etienne Koechlin and I showed that medial PFC implements reward-related signal that biases task selection in lateral PFC during decision making.
