How do we process and compare different types of rewards and experiences? How do we trust other people and cooperate in group settings? Why do these decisions go awry in some people but not others? Our laboratory investigates the neural mechanisms that underlie responses to social and economic incentives and how those responses influence our decisions. To understand the mechanistic links between incentives and our behavior, we utilize an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating perspectives from neuroscience, psychology, and economics.
