Our research

(Follow us at PI’s linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/in/george-c-9a772364/ )

Neuroscience has made amazing discoveries. We now have the unprecedented ability to observe, record, analyse and even predict the human brain and body in vivo, sometimes 24/7 with millisecond accuracy.

Our aim is to introduce these extraordinary insights, concepts, theories and methods to disciplines that have not still appreciated this scientific revolution. These include architecture and engineering (urban neuroscience); decision making in management and business sciences , economics and education; aesthetics and culture.

Methodologically, we employ behavioural methods derived from psychology; computational methods stemming from game theory, learning theory and microeconomics; and biological measurements such as human neuroimaging using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), physiology (skin conductance), eye tracking, wearable technology and EEG, whereas we have been adapting Virtual Reality and Wearables for human research.

Decision making is a central concept across almost all sciences studying human behavior. Our research covers the following interconnected topics (fig. 1):

Our aim is to uncover, explain, predict and improve human choice behavior.
