Decision Neuroscience Lab
Our lab uses behavioral and neuroscience methods (e.g. fMRI/EEG) to study economic and social decision making in young adults, children/adolescents/older adults, and patients with psychiatric disorders.
Recent projects include Morality, Rationality, and Creativity (MRC).
Morality: cooperation, trust, lying,
Rationality: decision bias, learning,
Creativity: diversity, disinhibition.
