Zu meiner Person

 

I investigate the foundations of human emotional and social behavior using a multi-method and interdisciplinary approach combining theories, paradigms, and techniques from disciplines as varied as neuroscience (e.g., functional and structural MRI, TMS, combined TMS-fMRI, EEG), social psychology (e.g., questionnaires, social stress paradigms), psychobiology (e.g., hormonal and autonomic measures), and economics (e.g., game theoretic paradigms such as the ultimatum, trust and prisoner’s dilemma games).

More specifically, I am interested in the study of the neural and hormonal mechanisms underlying social and non-social decision making; emotional perception, experience and anticipation. My further research involves the study of emotion-regulation capacities, their role in (social) decision making, and their impact on emotional experience and anticipation.
