Welcome to the Morality Lab, directed by Liane Young and located in the Department of Psychology at Boston College.
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).
We are no longer looking for undergraduate RAs for the fall 2015 semester. Check this website in future for other opportunities to join the lab.
