|Dave Smith, PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychology, Temple University
Dave’s lab uses functional magnetic resonance imaging and noninvasive brain stimulation to study the neural mechanisms that shape our decisions for social and economic incentives. They also study how these mechanisms are disrupted in healthy aging, mood disorders, and substance use.
|John Clithero, PhD
Assistant Professor of Marketing, University of Oregon
John’s research employs both behavioral and fMRI experiments to understand the cognitive and neural mechanisms of individual decision making. View John’s website here.
|Vinod Venkatraman, PhD
Assistant Professor, Marketing and Supply Chain Management (MSCM), Fox School of Business, Temple University
Vinod’s research focuses on human decision making and the factors that can influence those decisions, such as mood, temperament, physiological state, and preferences related to decision-making strategies. Vinod uses behavioral, eye-tracking, and neuroimaging techniques in his research.View Vinod’s Fox Business School profile here.
|Adrienne Taren, MD, PhD
Emergency Medicine Resident Physician, PGY-3, University of Oklahoma
Her current research interests are: Neural Mechanisms of Stress & Protective Effects of Mindfulness Training; Resilience in Healthcare Providers; Mindfulness for Performance Enhancement
UX Research Manager
Allison applies qualitative and quantitative research methods to web and software development, designing studies and providing recommendations to ensure that product teams are building the right solutions the right way for the right user audience. She is currently managing a group of usability researchers at a startup accelerator in Boulder, Colorado.
|Nichole Lighthall, PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Central Florida
The goal of her research program is to develop a neural model of decision processing that can be used to identify age-related vulnerabilities and pathways to compensation. She is particularly interested in how age-related changes to cognitive and affective components of decision making impact decision processing and quality. Lab page. UCF profile page
|Rene San Martín, PhD
Assistant Professor & Director, Centro de Neuroeconomía, Department of Economics and Business, Universidad Diego Portales, Santiago, Chile
|Dianna Amasino, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow with Dr. Joël van der Weele, University of Amsterdam
Dianna uses behavioral modeling, eye tracking and neuroimaging to examine how context modulates value in decision-making. Her research has two main areas of focus: 1) understanding the interactions of attention and value during the choice process, and 2) investigating the neural underpinnings of social influences on motivation and valuation.

MD Candidate, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine
After spending time at Vanderbilt University examining how individual differences in the dopamine system influence impulsivity and decision making, Jacob is interested in transitioning to a more clinical focus in neuro-oncology and neurosurgery.
Master’s Student in Human-Computer Interaction, Georgia Institute of Technology
David is researching low-income families’ familiarity with technology and their approaches for learning about children’s health. Based on these insights, he will design and develop the appropriate technological tools to aid these parents in keeping track of their children’s development.View David’s website here.
User Services Specialist, Duke University
After spending time at Duke doing research, Edward transitioned into a split managerial and IT-related role, eventually moving into a full-time IT position. He hopes to use his experience working with sensitive data to focus on network and data security. He leaves a lasting legacy in the Huettel Lab, with some saying he was the best to ever do it simply because he never forgot about Dre.
