Postdoctoral Research Associate

  • PhD (Cognitive Neuroscience)

I'm a neuroscientist interested in the neural bases of decision-making. During my PhD, I investigated the Brain Valuation System, a network involved in subjective valuation and decision-making processes through behavioral investigation (Lopez-Persem et al, Plos Computational Biology 2017), fMRI (Lopez-Persem et al, e-Life 2016) and iEEG (Lopez-Persem et al, Nature Neuroscience, in press) in humans. My post-doctoral project is to closely investigate two subparts of the Brain Valuation System, the vmPFC and the OFC in humans and non-human primates. The goal is to better understand how the morphology (Lopez-Persem et al, Journal of Neuroscience 2019) and functional connectivity (in prep) of these regions are affecting the functional organization of the central hub of value-based decision-making.
