Research Summary

Dr. Sharot is director of the Affective Brain Lab (funded by a fellowship from the Wellcome Trust) and a faculty member of the department of Experimental Psychology at UCL.

Dr. Sharot's lab investigates how motivation and emotion determine our expectations of the future, our everyday decisions, our memories and our ability to learn. By understanding the brain mechanisms that mediate these effects their aim is to identify ways to encourage behavioural change that enhance well-being. Dr. Sharot's lab is interested in questions such as when and how do other people influence our decisions and judgments? Why do we process information in a biased manner? when, how, and why do people deceive themselves? How do these process go awry in depression?
