I developed a delayed match to sample task to study flexible decision making in mice using electrophysiological, imaging, optogenetic, and computational methods. I found that a motor area, previously thought to primarily guide movement, computes the decision locally and represents the perceptual information in a novel population of Layer 2 cells.
