We investigate anatomical organisation and cortical processing using computational models and techniques.
We have two main research interests.The computational anatomy group studies the organisation of anatomical brain connections and how they relate to regional brain function. We principally use non-invasive diffusion MRI, often in combination with functional techniques or traditional tracing techniques. We also have a strong methodological focus.
The learning and decision making group mostly investigates the role of frontal cortical mechanisms in controlling behaviour. We use computational descriptions at the behavioural and network levels to form predictions, and test these in neurophysiological, neurochemical, and lesion data.
