Improving Human Experience through Psychobiology
Ph.D. cand in Exp. Psych at Cambridge
I study the neural basis of human altruism, morality and value-based decision-making. My research investigates the influence of neurotransmitters (serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine) on the brain systems that motivate social and economic behavior. To explore these questions, I conduct experiments using pharmacological manipulations, brain imaging, psychophysiology and behavioral analysis. Understanding the mechanisms behind prosocial behavior can inform the development of social and economic institutions that promote social values over selfishness and discourage antisocial behavior.
