We focus on Neuroeconomics a.k.a. Decision Neuroscience, a nascent area that is at the intersection between neuroscience and social science disciplines. The broad goal of our research is to understand the cognitive and neurobiological foundation of social decision-making at the mechanistic level. Our work uses neuroscience techniques and models of economic choice to identify neural substrates of complex social behavior, in healthy and clinical populations, in adults and children.

How does the human brain read between the lines? Our latest preprint demonstrates that recovering the unstated meaning in communication involves simulating speaker choices in vmPFC in a rational,  automatic, and context-specific manner.      

Interested in participating our experiments?

We regularly recruit healthy adults and/or adolescents to participate in various kinds of decision-making experiments. Please follow us on weChat for the latest information about our studies.
