Brain Mechanism of Discrimination Learning: Spatial Navigation and Attention

Understanding the brain mechanisms underlying discrimination of threat, safety, and reward within a context is essential to improve treatment strategist for patients with anxiety and stress related psychopathologies. My research focuses on developing and validating innovative virtual reality (VR) tasks to study brain mechanisms of complex behavior. With my research we have delineated brain networks that learn to discriminate between threat and safety in an environment. My research aims to understand the way we perceive an environment and form mental maps of the environment, to guide future actions. Additionally, we use eye-tracking methodology to understand how we pay attention to their surroundings. With these novel VR platforms, I aim to find biomarkers or psychopathology to guide much-needed ways to advance personalized treatment options for patients.
