Our lab is at University College London and is located on Russell Square in London. Our goal is to understand the factors that determine happiness and to describe how our emotional state influences the decisions we make. We explore these questions using a combination of computational models and brain scanning in healthy and clinical populations. We are working to develop a mechanistic understanding of how major depression develops, is sustained, and can relapse.
Our research is supported by grants from the Medical Research Council, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, and the Max Planck Society.
