With Roland Zahn and colleagues at King's College, London, Scients Institute and IDOR are developing new methods for real time brain imaging and neurofeedback of moral motivations and emotions, to identify signatures capable of predicting clinical outcomes.
In this project, we are investigating the neurophysiological basis of pro-group altruistic decisions and group belongingness as psychological predictors of inter-group conflict. We collaborate with Drs. Harvey Whitehouse and Martha Newson at the AnthroLab, Oxford University.
We are using computational models of functional MRI data to model and decode natural musical experiences and complex visual scenes. Goals include the capacity to reconstruct and "enrich" sensory experience using generative neural networks. Collaboration with Annerose Engel (MPI, Leipzig) and Yuki Kamitani (Kyoto U).
In collaboration with Brian Knutson (Stanford U) and Dacher Keltner (UC Berkeley), we seek to establish the neural underpinnings of basic human affiliative motivations (nurturant love, sexual desire and awe) and use such physiological data to predict subsequent choices.
These research lines aim to (1) use functional MRI to elucidate the neural mechanisms of reward sensitivity and impulsivity in ADHD and (2) develop a device for non-invasive brain stimulation using focused ultrasound. Collaboration with Emi Furukawa, Jeff Wickens and Gail Tripp at OIST.
