Social Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory

University of Chicago

We investigate social cognition, empathy, morality, prosociality, and metacognition using functional neuroimaging and behavioral methods

Our work is situated at the intersection of cognitive neuroscience, social psychology, behavioral economics and political psychology. We are also conducting behavioral economics field studies in the Sahel region of Africa and the Congo examining the impact of armed-conflict violence exposure and forced displacement on the formation of children’s social preferences and on their parents’ social norms.
