The Nerual Coding Lab is broadly interested in finding the link between neuronal activity and the complex adaptive behaviour of organisms. We use neurophysiological and behavioural techniques to study the principles underlying sensory perception and learning. In highly controled behavioural experiments, rats are trained to perform a sensory discrimination task in order to collect a reward. Different projects investigate how the brain analyses the sensory information, learns about the stimulus reward association, and makes decisions under uncertain conditions. See Research for more details.

The Neural Coding Lab is part of the School of Psychology, and the Brain Sciences at the University of New South Wales.
