On adaptive behaviour and its neural basis: Insights from computational models and the mouse auditory cortex

Abstract:

The processes of learning and decision making are at the core of intelligence. Although these phenomena have been studied for centuries, their nature and bi- ological implementation are still unclear. In this thesis, I approach these issues from multiple perspectives. First, I developed a novel infrastructure for performing large-scale behavioural and optogenetics experiments in rodents. Additionally, I performed validating experiments showing that auditory cortex is necessary for sound de...
