What are you researching right now, Mr Musall?

“I am investigating how the brain makes decisions. To do this, my team and I examine how this process works in mice. More specifically, we examine which regions in the brain are active and when. We see these as luminous, shifting surfaces – as in the pictures behind me. The shifts show us the paths that the information takes and which nerve cell groups are involved. This helps us to test theories about decision-making in the human brain and to postulate new theories about it.”
