Neural dynamics underlying adaptive decision-making in health and brain disorders
Abstract: Perceptual decision-making involves multiple cognitive maps across distributed brain areas. It is less clear which brain regions are essential and how changes in neural coding flexibly re-maps with altered stimulus-reward contingency altering animal’s adaptive behaviour. In this talk, I will highlight one such circuit mechanism and present evidence of cognate neural correlates of flexible decision-making. Based on this, I will also argue for a new conceptual framework based on computational psychiatry to understand pathophysiology in complex neurological brain disorders.
