We seek to understand the cognitive and neural representation of social cognition and how cultural experience shapes the neural circuitry supporting social cognition. We currently focus on the topics of social associations, self-representation, socially conceptual categorisation, social preference and gratitude, by working with different populations, healthy young and elderly adults, stroke and dementia patients and depressed patients.

We aim to improve understanding of how self-related processing (and other forms of motivational bias) determines human behaviour, how aberrant self representation leads to different cognitive deficits and mental illness, and to develop sensitive measures to enhance clinical diagnosis and treatment.
