The Challenges of Understanding Others

The SCAN lab studies how humans understand the thoughts, feelings and mental states of other people. We employ both functional neuroimaging (fMRI) and behavioral methods to study the neural correlates and processes of social cognition. For more information about lab research please see our website:  http://www.wjh.harvard.edu/~scanlab/papers.html.  Research assistants help prepare experimental stimuli, recruit and screen subjects, and conduct behavioral and fMRI experiments.  Students have the opportunity to become involved in all levels of research including designing studies, programming, and analyzing data.
