Dr. David Amodio examines the roles of social cognition and emotion in the regulation of behavior, and the neural mechanisms underlying these processes. Much of his work examines these processes in the context of prejudice and stereotyping, although his interests extend to the areas of motivation and health psychology. In each area, issues of behavioral regulation are central and the focus is on mechanism.
Dr. Amodio's research may be described broadly as social neuroscience; he typically use EEG, event-related potentials (ERPs), and fMRI in combination with behavioral and self-report measures to study social processes.
