Jesus Penaloza

Graduate Student

Behaviors serve as a window to understand how the brain integrates cognitive, motor, and sensory information to enable decision making. My main goal is to study the dynamics of this complex system to develop models that could inform neuro-behavioral targets for neurodevelopmental disorders.
