Research Summary

Dr Mitchell's group studies the neurobiology of learning and decision-making focusing on the contributions of the dorsal medial thalamus and interconnected structures in health and disease using animal models and humans. She is also interested in how the thalamus and cortex contribute to learning, remembering, and updating our whereabouts in our visual environment. Her laboratory uses several approaches to investigate their research questions including: neurophysiology, neuroimaging, neuroanatomy, and cognitive, physiological, and behavioral assessments.
