My current research aims to understand how the brain predicts future reward, and learns based on errors of predictions using mice. I am using a virtual reality setup to accurately control the visual inputs and, in turn, perceived position in the virtual space. Once the animal associates position and reward, the manipulation of the perceived position helps us to characterize a ‘black box’ of reward processing in dopamine neurons.
