The classic view of the striatal circuit in learning and decision making is that corticostriatal inputs encode specific actions or stimuli, and a homogeneous reward prediction error provided by dopamine neurons serves to modify the strength of those corticostriatal synapses, altering the behaviors which are most likely to subsequently occur. His lab has been recording and manipulating activity in genetically and anatomically defined inputs to the striatum during a range of learning and decision making tasks.
