PANEL: A Team Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Understanding the Neural Circuit Dynamics Underlying Working Memory and Decision-Making



Working memory (the ability to hold some information in mind for a few seconds, and to manipulate that information) and decision-making (committing to one out of multiple possible choices) are fundamental to our daily lives. But how brain circuits and dynamics create those computations is still unknown. Using behaving rodents and deploying the latest research advances in neuroscience, we are a team of 7 different labs, working together in an attempt to crack the problem. We aim to understand how populations of neurons in multiple regions of the brain interact with each other in order to jointly produce what we experience as working memory and decision-making.
