Main positions:

- Principal investigator (Insert Researcher Director) at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière (ICM)

- Scientific Head of the Prism platform for the exploration of human behavior.


Project:

My research aims at understanding the determinants of behavior (why we do what we do), in both normal and pathological conditions. To this aim I combine concepts and methods from different scientific fields: neuroscience, psychology, economics and computational modeling. My fundamental objective is to elucidate the brain mechanisms that form goals and translate them into particular behaviors. As a clinical application I intend to gain insight into a variety of psychiatric and neurological diseases in which motivation is deficient or excessive.
