Delgado Lab of Social and Affective Neuroscience
fMRI brain data
 The Delgado Lab for Social and Affective Neuroscience investigates the interaction of emotion and cognition in the human brain during learning and decision making.

 We use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in conjunction with physiological and behavioral measures to investigate how behavior can be shaped by rewards and punishments.        
 Studies range from simple processes that can be mapped on to current animal studies (e.g., learning that a stimulus predicts a reward), to more complex processes displayed during social interaction in everyday behavior (e.g., learning to trust someone during an economic exchange).

We are located on the 4th floor of Smith Hall at the Rutgers - Newark campus, situated in the University Heights District.
