MP has a background in biology and psychology. During his PhD with Léon Tremblay in paris, he studied a primate model of Parkinson’s disease using singe-unit recordings from the basal ganglia. During his post-doc, supervised by Chris Frith at the Functional Imaging Lab in London, he used pharmacological and model-based fMRI to investigate the neural correlates of decision-making.
