Transmission of food preferences during social interaction

Rats modify their own food preferences adopting the preferences of other rats. We have demonstrated that damaging the Nucleus Accumbens shell abolish this behavior. Our next step is to evaluate whether dopamine and serotonin levels within the Nucleus Accumbens Shell correlate with the change in preference observed in the rats.

The students will be involved in animal handling and care, behavioral testing, and data analysis.

Psychopharmacological Effects on Decision-Making Behavior and Affect Misattribution

Acute stress has become an inescapable companion of our daily lives - whether it's due to a delayed train, a traffic jam, or an urgent deadline. As such, it is likely to affect everyday processes, such as decision-making. To investigate this, we will conduct a psychopharmacological study on the effects of stress on economic and moral decision-making behavior in the context of social decision-making. In addition, stress may also affect emotion processing. Therefore, we will also investigate the effect of the psychopharmacological manipulation on affect misattribution.
