David Redish and his lab have two main research objectives: to better understand how learning and memory systems interact to produce behavior, and to apply that understanding to explain dysfunctional and broken behavioral-control systems. Redish uses experimental studies, computational studies, and theoretical studies to bring data together to get a better picture of how animals make decisions, including how rats make decisions about where to find food and how humans make decisions about economic incentives, drug-taking, and gambling.
