Brain, Emotion, and Decision Laboratory

Brain, emotion and decision laboratory is hosted by Dr. Nai-Shing Yen, who is currently a professor of the Department of Psychology at NCCU. The major research interest of the laboratory is to study the behavioral and electrophysiological effects of emotion on decision making. Major research topics and findings in recent years include: (1) to examine the construct, physiological, and neural correlates of Somatic Marker Hypothesis, (2) to investigate the mechanism reflected by feedback-related negativity, (3) to explore the economics games (e.g., such as Ultimatum Game and Trust Game) from emotional, cognitive and neuropsychological view, (4) to investigate the EEG, EMG, heart rate, and SCR elicited by emotion pictures and the effects of emotion regulation strategies on electrophysiological responses. The research instruments used in the lab include biofeedback, EEG/ERP, fMRI, and eye tracker. Issues related to the above topics on Neuroeconomics and Affective Neuroscience will be further studied.
