DCN - Deep Cognitive Neuroscience

The DCN lab applies a multi-modal, cognitive neuroscience-based approach to understanding decision-making, learning and mental representations. The DNC lab combines behavioural experiments and computational modelling with electrochemical (dopamine, serotonin, noradrenaline) and electrophysiological (spiking activity, LFPs) recordings from deep brain structures in awake neurosurgical patients. In addition, the DCN lab uses functional neuroimaging (fMRI/MEG) and online data collection in healthy participants.

Our work is supported by an extensive network of international collaborations (e.g., Peter Dayan at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tübingen, and P. Read Montague at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC, Virginia Tech), as well as generous funding from the Lundbeck Foundation.
