Laura Globig: PhD Student

I am a second-year PhD student at the Affective Brain Lab. My research focuses on how different motives are integrated to influence evidence accumulation. I use a combination of magnetoencephalography, stress manipulation, behavioral tasks, and computational modeling. I was awarded a UCL Studentship and am a demonstrator for Psychology and Language Sciences.

Prior to joining the lab I completed a Master of Research in Social Neuroscience, Social Psychology and Clinical Psychology at the University of Berne (Switzerland). My thesis explored the mental processes involved in dishonesty using electrical neuroimaging. In addition, I was a research assistant at the Department for Social Psychology and Social Neuroscience studying social decision-making using electroencephalography and polysomnography and a research intern at the Department for Cognitive Psychology studying embodied cognition and mental imagery using eye tracking and virtual reality.
