Event Details: Neuroscience Lecture Series:â€œFlexible decision-making in prefrontal cortex and dorsal striatumâ€
Vincent Ferrera, PhD
"Flexible decision-making in prefrontal cortex and dorsal striatum"Â
Associate professor in Neuroscience and Psychiatry at Columbia University and Ferrera's Laboratory Principal Investigator.
Dr. Ferrera's research interest focuses on the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive and behavioral flexibility. The Ferrera laboratory uses neurophysiological and functional imaging approaches to understand how the brain weighs evidence, adjusts decision criteria, and evaluates reward outcomes. They are particularly interested in the neural mechanisms by which reward influences attention, especially in the context of socially rewarding stimuli such as faces.
