Dr. Cameron Awarded Social Science Research Institute Grant

Dr. Cameron was recently awarded a Level 2 grant ($15,240) from Penn State’s Social Science Research Institute for a project in collaboration with Drs. Robert Roeser and Chuck Geier (Human Development and Family Studies) and Dr. Jose Soto (Psychology): “Empathy for Disparity: A Social-Cognitive Neuroscience Approach”. The team also includes graduate students Sinhae Cho, Blake Colaianne, Julian Scheffer, and incoming graduate student Eliana Hadjiandreou. The project will use a range of methodologies, including self-report, behavioral, physiological, and neuroimaging techniques, to assess the motivated regulation of empathy and compassion in response to social inequalities.
