Research

research overview

  • Work in my lab focuses on basic and translational research on social influences in decision making. We use a combination of behavioral and functional magnetic resonance imaging experiments to tease apart the contributions that different brain regions make to decisions that involve someone else. We ask people to play games to test cognitive models of healthy and disordered social function. Our work often requires the development or adaptation of computational tools for work on neuroimaging datasets.
