Multi-modal imaging during active decision-making in humans

Functional neuroimaging has made great strides over the last two decades providing cognitive neuroscience with a connection between a metabolic demand measure and cognitive parameters. These latter parameters are often estimated using computational models of increasing sophistication.  Despite these successes, human neuroscience still needs to reach further back toward neurobiology because it is here where brains break and where one opportunity for intervention originates. In this talk I will discuss our efforts to record neuromodulators at sub-second timescales and during active decision-making.
