Neuroeconomics Laboratory



We implement transdisciplinary approaches to the study of health outcomes and policy. Through behavioral experiment and the integration of multimodal data recorded via eye-tracking, facial expression analysis, and biomedical sensors, we approach pressing health issues with a holistic approach to account for key factors that shape decision making.
