Dr Daniel Campbell-Meiklejohn
Visiting Research Fellow
I study social cognition with a focus on conformity, and decisions at the intersection of action value and theory-of-mind.
I have a secondary research interest in problem gambling-related cognition, with an emphasis on loss-chasing (including escalations of commitment and sunk costs).
We use pharmacological challenges, neuroimaging, genetics, and behavioural testing to develop neurobiological models of cognitions and neuropsychiatric markers of cognitive deficits.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
