Building blocks of morality: Toddlers are presented with short videos events they would see in everyday life while we monitor their gaze, and brain activity with EEG. We also play games with our young participants to examine their social abilities and preferences.

Development of moral behavior across cultures: To study how culture shapes and guides moral judgment and social decision-making, children are tested with behavioral economics tasks to examine moral cognition and behavior. This project is conducted in the US, Argentina, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, Jordan, Mexico, Norway, Taiwan, Turkey and South Africa.

Cross-cultural developmental neuroscience: To characterize the neural underpinnings of fairness and distributive justice, and how they differ or not by cultural environment, we are conducting EEG/ERP studies in the US, France, Mexico and Taiwan.

Moral cognition and group dynamics: This study examines how children’s moral cognition is guided by their identification and affiliation to group membership using both behavioral economics games and EEG recordings. Next, we are planning to run the same study in Israel.
