Dr. Gu Lab

Computational psychiatry is a new and highly interdisciplinary area. Dr. Gu’s computational psychiatry lab examines the neural and computational mechanisms underlying human decision-making and social interaction in both health and disease, through a synthesis of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), brain connectivity modelling, neuropsychology (brain lesions studies), pharmacological challenges, and computational modeling. The goal of Dr. Gu's research program is two-fold: 1) to help re-define and eventually improve human mental health; 2) to understand the neural and computational mechanisms of decision-making and social behavior. Research in the lab use a highly inter-disciplinary approach, which involves the integration of theories and methods from cognitive neuroscience, behavioral economics, psychology, psychiatry, mathematics, biophysics, computer science, and so on.
