摘 要:

Social behavior is probably one of the most complex functions produced by the human brain, marked by at least two unique features. First, it often requires anticipating actions and intentions of others. Second, it may involve considering the well-being of others. Whereas previous work has primarily explored functional maps of brain regions involved in these social cognitive functions, decision neuroscientists are starting to go beyond localization and seek insight into neural computations underlying social behavior by combining methods of neuroscience and behavioral game theory. I will present examples from my past work to demonstrate how these approaches, when jointly brought to bear on complex social phenomena, provide tractable and quantitative understanding about how humans make decisions about one another.

朱露莎研究员的研究领域处于脑科学和社会科学的交叉点神经经济学,又称决策神经学。运用脑科学实验手段(如核磁共振、脑损伤、药物)、结合经济学实验范式和数理模型, 探讨社会行为的大脑机制,以及这些机制如何在心理疾病和脑损伤的情况下出现偏差,以期理解复杂社会行为的生物学基础
