About Patricia Lockwood
I am a Medical Research Council Fellow and Jacobs Foundation Research Fellow (Associate Professor equivalent) at the Centre for Human Brain Health, University of Birmingham where I lead the Social Decision Neuroscience Lab (www.sdb-lab.org). Prior to this I was a Research Fellow at the University of Oxford. Our lab studies the cognitive, computational and neural mechanisms of social learning and decision-making. We combine an array of methodological techniques including neuroimaging, patient studies and computational modelling with behavioural paradigms inspired by economics and learning theory. I have received a number of awards for my work including the Frith Prize for Exceptional Doctoral Contributions, the APS Rising Star Award and the Society for Social Neuroscience Early Career Award.
