Research areas

I am interested in how animals and people learn to adjust their behaviour to obtain reward.  Most of my research has focused on the mesolimbic dopamine system and its role in adaptive behaviour. However, I have also studied other psychological functions of dopamine (such as reward, motivation, response selection and response initiation) in a variety of species (rodents, carnivores, nonhuman primates and neurological patients). I have additional experience in the study of the neurophysiology and functional neuroanatomy of sensory systems, particularly regarding selective attention.
