Our group is composed of students, research assistants, postdocs and PIs from UCSD and the Salk Institute that study the basal ganglia. Our collective research interests cover response control in humans, neurodegernative disease, addiction, decision-making, behavioral reinforcement, motor learning and computational network modeling. We approach these topics from the perspective of systems, circuits, synapses, and molecules. This site documents our selections from the literature and keeps us connected.
