Project description

This project investigates the complex influence of motivation on human behavior and cognitive control. Reward can benefit performance in diverse cognitive tasks, but the influence of other relevant factors, such as emotional relevance, task relevance, and response mode, are not well understood yet. We will use functional neuroimaging methods (fMRI)to investigate the underlying neural mechanisms of these processes.
