Research summary

My research looks at the role of dopamine in reinforcement learning and memory, and I test Parkinson's Disease patients, varying their medication states in order to affect the level of dopamine in their brains. I also fit computational models of reinforcement learning to the patients' data, in order to see whether dopamine medication changes parameters of the models when fit to data.
