Alan is the Principal investigator of the Decision Neuroscience Lab. His research utilises a novel approach to the study of both individual and interactive decision-making by combining the methods of behavioural experiments, functional neuroimaging, and formal economic models.
Inge finished the Research Master Behavioral Science at the Radboud University Nijmegen, collaborating with Ron Dotsch to investigate the cognitive mechanisms of face categorisation. She started her PhD at DNL in March 2014, and aims to uncover underlying mechanisms of scarcity and their effects on every-day decision making.
Having obtained a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a Master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience, in 2010 Vincent started his PhD at Rotterdam School of Management (with Prof Ale Smidts as promotor). His research interests include emotional and social influences on economic decision making and consumer choice.
Being a PhD student in Marketing and Decision Neuroscience at Rotterdam School of Management and at the Donders Insitute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior, Linda combines behavioural and neuroimaging methods to examine motivation and decision-making.
After having obtained her Master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience from Radboud University Nijmegen, Catalina is now working on a joint PhD project of the Rotterdam School of Management and the Donders Institute. She is currently investigating how prices influence valuation.
Elisa is currently a graduate student in Brain and Cognitive Science at the University of Amsterdam. At our lab, she aims to use computational modeling and imaging techniques to gain insight into how and to what extent prior knowledge affects social decision making.
Flavia is currently a graduate student of the Cognitive Neuroscience Master's at Radboud University in Nijmegen. At our lab, she will be investigate how social decisions are being made in the context of (monetary) inequality.
lli is broadly interested in neural mechanisms and motivations that underlie decision-making in both healthy and clinical populations. She currently focuses on information acquisition and uncertainty in social contexts, combining neuroimaging, behaviour and Bayesian modelling approaches.
After having obtained his Master's degree in Neuroscience and Cognition from Utrecht University, Jeroen is now studying the role of norms and social expectations in decisions to trust and reciprocate, specifically the motivations underlying kind behaviour.
Achiel has an academic background in Behavioral Psychology, (Experimental) Economics and (some) Artificial Intelligence. He’s pursued his master’s degrees in Financial Economics and Cognitive Neuroscience, with a focus on the neural correlates of other-regarding preferences. Currently he is doing his PhD in Nijmegen/Kleve.
Filippo is a second year Economics Research Master student at Utrecht University School of Economics. He had always been interested with the mechanisms that underlie decision making and believes that neuroeconomics can provide answers to these age-old questions. In his time at the Decision Neuroscience Lab he will be helping with data collection and writing his Master’s thesis.
Sofia Marcolini is pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Padua University (Italy). She will collaborate with Inge Huijsmans in her Research on Probability learning in scarcity for which I will be analyzing behavioral data, and she will also assist Flavia Arnese with MRI scanning.
Marcella Tarantini is studying for a Master's degree in Psychology at the University of Trentino (Italy). She will work on follow-ups to projects on punishment and revenge, collecting data and analysing experiments examining why (and when) we punish others for their transgressions.
