Laboratory for Darwinian Neuroscience

The Laboratory for Darwinian Neuroscience investigates the neural and genetic bases of individual variation in human social cognition and behavior, with a specific focus on cooperative social behavior. These studies involve the use of fMRI and pharmacologic manipulations. A secondary goal of the lab is to understand the neural substrates that support the unique features of the human mind through comparative neuroimaging, in which the human brain is compared with the non-human primate brains using a variety of imaging techniques including MRI, fMRI, PET and DTI.
