Research summary

My PhD is about spatio-temporal interactions of stimuli-induced activity in neural networks during sensori-motor transformation. Those interactions can be an integral part of a decision making system, but they can also shape the motor execution. The saccadic eye movement system came as the obvious sensori-motor system to focus on during my PhD due to the substantial quantity of studies from which it benefits, from psychophysics, neurophysiology and modelling.
