Cognitive neuroscience of response control

We study how people control themselves. In experimental psychology, this is the field of “executive function” or “cognitive control”. More specifically, we study the control of (inappropriate) response tendencies. We design behavioral paradigms that try to mimic response control in more naturalistic settings. And we study the underlying brain systems using various imaging and stimulation methods in healthy volunteers as well as neurological patients, and more recently in mice.
