The Social Neuroscience Lab investigates human social behavior. Adopting an interdisciplinary and multi-method approach, we study the neuronal, hormonal, and developmental foundations of human social cognition as well as social and moral emotions such as empathy, compassion and fairness. Further, we are interested in the malleability of social capacities through mental training and its function for social decision making, human cooperation and prosociality.
