Socio-Economic Status

Inspired by recent studies on socio-economic status (SES) and stress reactivity, this line of research uses experimental methods from cognitive psychology and neuroscience to systematically describe the effect of SES on emotion and cognition.For instance, we are interested in SES-related differences on economic decisions and their underlying cognitive and emotional mechanisms. In addition, our studies have examined gene-SES interactions in emotion-cognition.​​​​​​​
