Prof Dr Georgios CHRISTOPOULOS
Assistant professor G. Christopoulos (PhD Cambridge, Post-Doc: Cambridge, Virginia Tech and Baylor College of Medicine) has extensive research experience in examining neurobehavioral accounts of human cognition and decision making. A series of studies published in high impact journals identified the neural correlates underlying decision making under risk and risk attitudes (PNAS, 2009; Journal of Neuroscience, 2009, 2010). Recent studies have explored the social and cultural aspects of human behaviour employing novel computational approaches (Nature Neuroscience, 2015, Neuroimage 2015).

His research aims to uncover, explain, predict and improve human decision making in dynamic and complex environments. He is the research director of the Culture Science Institute at NBS and is currently conducting studies on neurobehavioral and cultural aspects of individual and group decision-making under risk. Recently, his Lab is interested in understanding the relationship between human behaviour and the built environment (Neuroscience and Architecture), especially in Mega-Cities.
Methods: His research agenda combines the two research traditions of decision theory and cognitive neuroscience. Methodologically, he employs behavioural methods derived from psychology; computational methods stemming from game theory, learning theory and microeconomics; and biological measurements such as human neuroimaging using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and EEG.
