Decision & Emotion

Robb Rutledge


Our group is interested in understanding the factors that determine subjective emotional states like happiness and in quantitatively describing how our emotional state influences the decisions we make. We explore these questions using a combination of computational models, brain scanning, pharmacology, and large-scale smartphone-based data collection in healthy and clinical populations. Through The Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, we are working to develop a mechanistic understanding of mood disorders including bipolar disorder and major depression.
