Researcher Bio

I am interested in study the process of human decision making and behavior that can be measured with neuroscience tools. I am also curious about the networks behind the resting state. 

Now I am working on a multidisciplinary project that combines approaches of cognitive neuroscience, economics and social neuroscience. We want to determine which brain regions are causally involved in charity donation and also in elucidating its mechanism and the degree to which monetary value of charitable donations can be modulated in healthy participants using stimulation cerebral cortex.
