We study the cognitive and neural basis of moral judgment. Our current research focuses on the role of theory of mind, mind attribution, and emotions in moral judgment and behavior, as well as individual and cultural differences in moral cognition. We are also interested in conceptions of the self and free will.
The Morality Lab employs methods of social psychology and cognitive neuroscience, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), examination of patient populations with selective cognitive deficits, and modulation of activity in specific brain regions using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
The Morality lab is currently looking for a full-time lab manager to begin work Spring / Summer 2015. We are also currently accepting applications from students for volunteer research positions for Summer 2015. Click on the join tab to find out more!
