I'm interested in how we decide between actions. These decisions require a couple of fundamental competencies, including the ability to track and update reward contingencies and the ability to to parse individual targets from an environment that is full of competing alternatives. However, little is known about the neurobiological mechanisms by which selective attention and reward history come together to shape these decisions. My work utilizes the vast knowledge of the structure and function of the frontal eye fields, a prefrontal oculomotor control region, to determine how attention and reward history interact during the selection of eye movements. Specifically, my work examines how input from other cortical or subcortical structures affects reward history and attention signals in the FEF neurons that guide eye movements.
