— Motivated Cognition Lab

Members of the lab investigate the role of motivation and emotion in human cognition, with a particular focus on the role of reinforcement learning in perception and selection.


We use a broad spectrum of cognitive neuroscience techniques including behavioural measures like reaction time, task accuracy, and personality assessment; neuroimaging techniques like electroencephalography, event-related potentials, and functional magnetic resonance imaging; and intervention techniques like transcranial electrical stimulation and psychopharmacology.
