Special Biomed Seminar with Dr. Frank Krueger from George Mason University
November 27, 2018
Dr. Frank Krueger, Associate Professor of Systems Social Neuroscience in the School of Systems Biology at George Mason University (GMU), will give a Biomed Special Seminar titled, "Intrinsic Functional Brain Dynamics and Brain Morphology Predict Individual Differences in Interpersonal Trust" on Friday, November 30, 2018 at 9:00 AM at the CONQUER Collaborative, Monell Chemical Senses Center, Room 114, located at 3508 Market Street.
Dr. Krueger is also the Chief of the Social Cognition an Interaction: Functionalism and Immersion (SCI: FI) Lab and Co-Director of the Center for the Study of Neuroeconomics at George Mason University. As a psychologist and neuroscientist, Dr. Krueger is interested in understanding the psychological functions (i. e., why they exist and work) and the proximate neurobiological mechanisms (i. e., how they work) of social cognition (e. g., beliefs, schemata) in social interactions (e. g., trust, altruism), combining paradigms from social psychology and behavioral economics with methods from social and computational neuroscience. With such an interdisciplinary and multi-methods approach, he aims to promote the transfer of basic research findings into treatment for and prevention of social brain disorders ultimately providing benefits to human health.
