I am a neuroscientist with a background in Mathematics. I work with Alex Hyafil at the Computational Neuroscience Group at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, in Barcelona. I use Recurrent Neural Networks to investigate the computational principles underlying decision making processes.
My latest work, in colaboration with Yuxiu Shao, Robert Yang, Srdjan Ostojic and Jaime de la Rocha, (Molano-Mazón et al. 2022 bioRxiv) shows that by pre-training RNNs on ecologically relevant environments it is possible to recover a suboptimal behavior observed in rats performing a two-alternative forced choice task that presents serial correlations.
I have recently written an opinion piece together with Dr. Robert Yang (Yang and Molano-Mazón 2021 Current Opinion in Neurobiology).
