Linda's paper (with Alan, Maarten Boksem and Ale Smidts) on the neural mechanisms underlying diversification of choice has been published in Frontiers in Neuroscience. Congrats Linda! See the publication tap for more details.
A collaboration between the lab and researchers at Erasmus University has led to a new publication in Neuroimage focusing on the decoding of affect from shared neural patterns. See the publication tab for more details!
Welcome Sarah! Sarah joins us as a research assistant fresh from her MSc from Oxford Brookes University in England, and will be working on a new study examining how social information can promote curiosity and impact decision-making in an ecologically valid context. Enjoy your stay Sarah!
Inge has submitted her PhD thesis and leaves us to take up an exciting postdoctoral fellowship in the lab of Elizabeth Phelps at Harvard University. We wish her well, and look forward to her dissertation defense (and party) soon!
Minnie will conduct her thesis research in the lab, and we welcome her! She is Research Master's student at the Behavioural Science Institute, and her thesis work will examine prosocial behaviour and altruism. Enjoy the year Minnie!
We welcome Harshil to the lab. Harshil is a Research Master's student at the Donders Institute, and will complete his thesis in the lab over the next year. Harshil's research will focus on the neural basis of temporal discounting and social reward, specifically examining whether we discuss social rewards in a manner similar to monetary reward. He will use some exciting new approaches to assessing real-life social reward, and we wish him well in his study!
