How does human memory search work? The hippocampus and cerebellum are key for cognitive foraging. New paper with Nancy Lundin

NAc-DBS in severe AUD patients significantly reduces alcohol consumption, alcohol compulsivity, and anxiety at 12 months. Improvement in Obsessive-Compulsive Drinking Scale appears to correlate with BOLD connectivity reduction between NAc and visual areas.

Using fMRI and the BART, we identified NAcc activation differences in schizophrenia associated with risky reward pursuit, modeled parametrically within-trials relative to sequentially increasing balloon explosion probability.

Results do not implicate greater activation, or statistically determined influence from brain regions, associated with stronger uncertainty risk processing or aversion in schizophrenia.


Our latest paper on goal-directed problem solving out today, with combined computational neural modeling (GOLSA) and fMRI / RSA.

We are hiring a new endowed Professor in the Indiana University Gill Center! Come join us in an extremely collegial and collaborative environment. We are six chairs working on cellular and molecular neuroscience from various departments across campus Will you be the 7th?! Feel free to DM for details & Please Retoot!

If you're at , stop by our poster this afternoon Monday 11/14: 414.21 / ZZ38 - Temporal interference neurostimulation yields fMRI BOLD activation in humans

So excited about @PessoaBrain's new book "The Entangled Brain," I preordered. πŸ”₯ Luiz is saying the quiet parts out loud πŸ”₯

"Bigger and shinier tools and techniques alone won't yield the necessary progress; we run the risk of being able to measure every cell (or subcellular component even) in the brain in a theoretical vacuum."

"The current obsession in the field with causation is equally problematic. With out conceptual clarity ... "causal" explanations in fact might miss the point."

Hmm. I am usually the last to join a new technology/trend (refused cell phones for years, didn't want to upgrade from windows 3.11 to 95 πŸ˜ƒ and kept Keynote9 for way too long). So moving to mastodon so early makes me nervous.

Consider this my @introduction. I am tentatively here :).

Computational neuroscientist by training (RL FTW), now comp psychiatry & psychotherapy (human behavior & individual diff FTW), and on sabbatical learning & practicing CBT! Lab @ Princeton full of wonderful people.


First of all, I'm jealous.

Second, take some time to look at the meeting planner and figure out your schedule! It’ll be overwhelming β€” plan on doing just a little less than what you think you can. Prioritize meeting people. πŸ‘‹

Also, wear good shoes and eat a good breakfast! You’ll want to dress professionally but comfortably.

And, um, don't over-caffeinate yourself even though it's tempting. Did this once. Wasn't fun. πŸ€ͺ


Hi all, time for a quick #introduction.
I am a research director in cognitive #neuroscience at the Ecole Normale SupΓ©rieure in Paris (France). My research group studies human #decision-making: not only how we make decisions, but also why we make avoidable errors under uncertainty. To do this, my group uses mathematical models of #behavior and #brain activity.
I will be posting our new work here, and hopefully more as the science community grows.

Overdue #introduction #1stToot

Hi πŸ‘‹πŸΌ! I’m a #neuroscience Instructor in Rudebeck’s lab at #MountSinai NY.

Strong focus on animal #learning #DecisionMaking #Reward #valuation and how #prefrontal #subcortical regions represent these and interact at the level of #neurons and #LFP.

Proponent of recording neurons in too many areas simultaneously, and a #Matlab enthusiast (I know.. I complain about it too!).

Off lab, you will find me #biking , pushing a #stroller , and/or enjoying #beers.

As promised, our mini-review to accompany this session now out in the Journal! Major thanks to @vincentcosta for the heavy lifting on the FPC anatomy section!

#introduction I'm a neuroscientist at Oxford and UCL. I spend most of my time thinking about the front of the brain and how it controls behaviour. Sometimes this leads me backwards, but never really further back than hippocampus. I am also deputy editor at eLife so you can shout at me for that if you like.

Turns out you can write " : verified : " after your mastodon profile name, and voila! You have a blue check, very reasonably priced.

Are you going to ? Stop by our posters and say hi! Monday afternoon 414.21 / ZZ38 - Temporal interference neurostimulation yields fMRI BOLD activation in humans. Also Tuesday afternoon 573.08 / XX9 - Computational neural mechanisms of scalable planning to arbitrary goals.

Hi peeps joining! πŸ‘‹ I'm a professor at Indiana U studying cognitive control, with computational neural models and fMRI. I also study addiction and temporal interference neurostimulation.

I just asked my communications and IT colleagues at #Stanford to consider hosting a #Mastodon server for our University community (as MIT has already done:

Such institutional sponsorships (e.g., higher ed, academic associations, etc.) seem like a compelling & sustainable equilibrium for the #TwitterMigration. I also think organizations that do so would benefit in several ways without meaningful new risks.

Hey #neurotwitter πŸ‘‹

This is a great opportunity to build a robust community for #neuroscience #neuroengineering #neurotech.
