Research summary

My previous research investigated the neuropharmacology of social interactive behaviour using psilocybin (magic mushrooms), MDMA (ecstasy) and ketamine. I utilised game theoretic tasks alongside fMRI to see how these compounds effect the neural underpinnings of one's propensity to trust, cooperate and punish in social settings. Currently, I am approaching the topic from a foraging perspective, and asking whether humans value social rewards as they do other valued resources.
