Neural Bases of Subliminal Priming of Social Values (Past Project)


João Ascenso


The aim of the PhD project is to study the neural basis of automatic activations of moral and not moral values ​​and their relation with the reward system in the brain and its possible influence on decision making processes.

Two functional magnetic resonance studies are being conducted:
(1) automatic priming of benevolence and achievement values ​​and their effect on decision making processes and its relationship with the reward system , and
(2) unconscious priming of benevolence ​​and achievement values and its effect on decision making processes.
