About the Project
This project is primarily lab based and it would involve a series of experimental studies, perhaps involving EEG, TMS or tDCS, that would attempt to characterize the psychological and brain mechanisms that underlie the effects of engagement of executive functions on motivated behaviour in healthy adults. There may also be scope to develop and conduct a preliminary test of a behaviour change intervention that builds on this laboratory work.
