Research title
Neural representation of value

Research project

I investigate different aspects of value representation in the brain. For example, how the sensory modality in which alternatives are presented affect choice behavior and the neural correlates of decisions. Additionally, I study the individual differences that underlie dishonest choices, namely, how different people incorporate utilitarian values with social values. I use behavioral paradigms from economics and game theory, as well as neuroimaging.
