Our general research goal is to understand the brain mechanisms that allow people to adapt quickly to changes in their environment. Our work combines mathematical modeling with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), ultra-high resolution 7T MRI, electroencephalography (EEG), and postmortem work. Our general research strategy capitalizes on individual differences in psychological processes involved in decision-making and interference control. Process models and descriptive models quantify the process of interest for each individual separately, and structural and functional brain imaging techniques subsequently relate inter-individual variation in psychological processes to inter-individual variation in the neural substrate.
