Monosov Lab

Neuronal basis of voluntary behavior

PI: Ilya Monosov, PhD

The Monosov Lab is interested in uncovering the neuronal-basis and computational-mechanisms of voluntary-behavior and cognition, and to apply this knowledge to develop novel targeted treatments for psychiatric disorders. We are especially interested in (i) risky decision-making under uncertainty, (ii) exploration and novelty-seeking, (iii) appetitive and aversive learning, and (iv) curiosity, and in how they are controlled in health and disease.
