Caroline Charpentier: PhD Student

I received my first degree in Biology from the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Lyon in 2011 and my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from UCL in 2012. During my MSc I conducted an fMRI study investigating how collective decisions alter individual preferences and choices, as well as their neural correlates. I recently started my PhD at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience under the co-supervision of Jon Roiser and Tali Sharot. I am interested in combining several techniques, such as behavioural measures, neuroimaging, brain stimulation, or pharmacology, in order to study how emotions and social influences affect economic decision-making and how this interaction can be altered in depression.
