Laubach is a neurobiologist interested in how groups of neurons work together to process information. His research focuses on understanding the neuronal circuit basis of decision making, motivation, and self-control. He is especially interested in how decisions are adjusted when outcomes do not match expectations. Laubach's laboratory uses multi-electrode recordings, optogenetics, and computational methods to record brain cell activity and analyze the resulting data.
