|Social Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory
Background. Most of the research in my lab involves a social cognitive neuroscience (SCN) approach that I developed with Kevin Ochsner when we were graduate students at Harvard University. Social cognitive neuroscience focuses on how the human brain carries out social information processing. Practically speaking, this means that we use functional neuroimaging (fMRI) and neuropsychology to test new hypotheses regarding social cognition or old questions whose answers continue to elude us.
