Purpose

Our research investigates neural mechanisms that support emotion, and explores implications of these discoveries for decision making and mental health. Our progress ultimately relies upon a symbiosis of psychological theory and neuroscience methods.

Goals

  • Characterizing the neuroanatomical and chemical trajectory of affective circuits.
  • Determining whether therapy can normalize deranged affective circuits.
  • Understanding how affective circuits influence (economic) decision-making.
  • Innovating new methods for tracking affect dynamics.
