Trevor Chong

BMedSc(Hons), MBBS(Hons), PhD, FRACP

Postdoctoral Research Associate

My research uses a combination of behavioural and neuroimaging (fMRI) techniques to elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying the processing of effort and reward in the human brain. I am interested not only in understanding such processes in healthy individuals, but also in clinical conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, which are commonly associated with decision-making impairments.

My other interests include:

  • How actions are represented in the human brain, in particular via the mirror neuron system.
  • The distinction between conscious and unconscious processes.
