Dr Daniel Campbell-Meiklejohn

Interests

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.
