Vinod Goel

Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, Goel Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, York University

MES Environmental Studies, 1986

I am interested in understanding the cognitive, computational, and neural basis of rational decision-making and emotional processing in humans, and more recently, the interaction between the two. My primary methodologies include brain imaging (fMRI & PET), patient studies, and computational modelling. I also take an active interest in the philosophical/foundational issues that beset cognitive science.
