Areas I Research:


Celia Beron is a postdoctoral research fellow in Bernardo Sabatini’s lab. She received her B.S. in Biology from the University of Texas at Austin in 2016, and then joined the Program in Neuroscience at Harvard, where she completed her Ph.D. in Bernardo Sabatini’s lab in 2023.

Research Focus

Beron’s research focus is on neural computations underlying flexible decision making. Her work centers both on defining and modeling the sequential behavior of animals performing probabilistic reward-based behaviors, as well as studying the neural activity mediating this behavior. She has focused on how the dopamine released in the basal ganglia encodes and evaluates recent experience to influence future action. Beron is also interested in interpretability of artificial neural networks. She is currently studying mechanisms by which ANNs learn from the statistical structure of their inputs relative to their objective, and the corresponding representational properties that emerge within a network.
