My research focuses on understanding how people make choices when they don’t have all of the information. I explore how differences in susceptibility to experiencing anxiety relate to differences in processing uncertainty and seeking information. Through such research we hope to better understand the brain basis for anxiety disorders, and inform future diagnosis and treatment approaches. To explore decision-making under uncertainty, we use task-based fMRI, and model subjects’ behaviour and brain function when they are performing such decision-making tasks.
I work with Dr Sonia Bishop (Cognitive Affective Neuroscience), Dr Jill O’Reilly (Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience) and Dr Janine Bijsterbosch (Resting State Analysis).
