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 networks. 

Now I am working on a multidisciplinary project that combines approaches of cognitive neuroscience, economics and social neuroscience. We want to investigate whether OFC and DLPFC are brain regions causally involved in charity donation. And also elucidate the degree to which monetary value of charitable donations can be modulated in healthy participants using transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and its mechanism. To this aim we are going to analyze DWI, Resting State and Spectroscopy data acquired before and 5 days after tDCS stimulation.
