We are a new neuroscience lab at Columbia's Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute. Our goal is to combine the advantages of the songbird courtship system with state-of-the-art computational, theoretical, and experimental approaches to discover how brains evaluate behaviors, both self-generated and the behaviors of others. By discovering fundamental principles of brain function, we aim to provide insight into neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and autism.
