Doctoral student in applied human sciences
Juvenal Bosulu is a PhD student at the University of Montreal. His PhD is interdisciplinary and his research focuses on the neural substrates for distinguishing needs and wants. How these states attribute value to stimuli, control choice/action selection and how they contribute to behavior (motivation). Juvenal uses fMRI meta-analytic tools to find differences and similarities between needs and wants, as well as the computational framework of Reinforcement Learning to see how stimuli related to need versus want are valued, in order to influence choice and action selection. Juvenal Bosulu has a background in economics, following his bachelor's and master's degrees.
