Alan recently presented to the Hot Politics Lab at the University of Amsterdam. The Hot Politics Lab is an interdisciplinary research group using political psychology and adjacent fields to explain salient socio-political themes. During his talk, Alan shared research from our lab, including insights on the neural and behavioural impact of political messaging. Watch his talk here:

Welcome Omer! Omer recently moved to the Netherlands from Turkey where he studied psychology at Ankara University. He is currently a first-year research masters student at the BSI, and is interested in the neural basis of moral, political and religious behaviour, and decision-making in general. He will hopefully be completing his master’s thesis next year in our lab. In his free time, Omer enjoys traveling and discovering new places. We hope you enjoy your time with us, Omer!

In October, Achiel and Alan's work on memory-based decision-making was presented (online) at the 19th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroeconomics. Through both a poster and poster-spotlight talk, Achiel shared his research on episodic memory. Watch his full talk here. Congrats again, Achiel!
