REWARD & PUNISHMENT IN THE MIRROR NEURON NETWORK

A new study shows that reward and punishment can influence the mirror neuron related activity in the brain. Therefore the degree to which we simulate others' actions could be driven by the reward values we associate with the actions, which is likely to be different depending upon the context. This provides neural evidence that our ability to learn social skills during development through observing others' behaviour is also affected by how much we value others' behaviour.…See More

The role of prediction in social neuroscience (FREE ARTICLE DOWNLOAD)

http://www.frontiersin.org/Human_Neuroscience/10.3389/fnhum.2012.00147/abstractResearch has shown that the brain is constantly making predictions about future events. Theories of prediction in perception, action and learning suggest that the brain serves to reduce the discrepancies between expectation and actual experience, i.e., by reducing the prediction error. Forward models of…See More

Profile Information

Main areas of research:
My research revolves around social cognition and the deficits in social functioning seen in schizophrenia. I am interested in how we understand other people's actions in social situations, how we learn and develop these skills and how schizophrenia leads to problems in understanding oneself and others. The main methods I am using to explore my research questions are EEG, TMS, fMRI and behavioural methods.
Interests/keywords:
Social neuroscience, schizophrenia, action observation, empathy, theory of mind, EEG, fMRI, TMS
Current title/position:
Graduate student
Current affiliation/employer:
Research Department of Cognitive Neuropsychiatry
LWL University Hospital,
Ruhr University Bochum,
Germany
PhD Advisor and University:
Martin Brüne, Ruhr University Bochum
