How does the human brain give rise to conscious subjective experiences and how do these processes guide human behavior and decision-making?
To answer this fundamental question, my laboratory uses intracranial measures (e.g., human voltammetry, stereo-EEG, and micro-electrode recordings) as well as noninvasive neuroimaging tools (e.g., fMRI and MEG) to measure brain activity during conscious decision-making in humans. We use behavioral tasks that are constrained by computational considerations borrowing ideas from game theory and artificial intelligence research.
