Additional Information

The goal of Nina Lauharatanahirun’s research is to use computational modeling, behavioral economic paradigms and functional neuroimaging (fMRI/EEG) to understand the neural and behavioral mechanisms underlying health risk behaviors across the lifespan. Current research interests focus on understanding (i) the developmental trajectories of neurobehavioral mechanisms of adolescent risky decision making; (ii) how social factors at the individual and group (e.g. social influence) level affect both neural and behavioral decision processes; and (iii) individual differences in risky decision-making behavior that may give rise to pathological health behaviors.
