Research Objectives

Why do people behave the way they do and why do they differ in doing so? In our lab, we investigate the neurobehavioral mechanisms of personality, motivation and social cognition. To do so, we use self-report, cognitive-behavioral, fMRI, EEG, psychophysiological, and endocrinological methods.
