Cerebral cortex contains a mosaic of brain areas that are connected to form distributed networks. In frontal and parietal cortex, these networks are specialized for movements such as saccadic eye movements and reaches. Before each movement we decide to make, these areas contain specific patterns of neural activity which can be used to predict what we will do. My research investigates the dynamics of neuronal activity to understand how brain areas interact during decision-making and tries to "decode" neuronal activity to predict our choices.
