Our lab, led by Assistant Professor Camilo Libedinsky, is part of the Department of Psychology of the National University of Singapore and located in the N.1 Institute for Health (N.1).

Our main area of research is in the field of cognitive computational neuroscience, where we study mental processes such as attention, working memory and decision-making. To this end, we record the activity of dozens of neurons simultaneously while animals perform complex behavioral tasks. The goal is to understand information processing in networks of neurons distributed in multiple brain regions.

We also engage in collaborations with engineers and medical doctors to test new medical devices and other technologies to understand or treat diseases and conditions that affect the nervous system. We have ongoing projects on cortical brain-machine interfaces, peripheral neuroprosthesis, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
