Alison Schreiber

Biography:

Alison's research employs a decision neuroscience approach to characterize neurocomputational mechanisms of social decision-making and how personality modulates these processes. Alison is also interested in characterizing how emotions can alter the relative balance of Pavlovian and goal-directed influences on decision-making, specifically as a way to understand how emotions, such as anger and empathy, subsequently impact prosocial decision-making. Alison obtained her BA in Psychological and Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis where she worked with Tom Oltmanns and Alan Lambert.
