Research

Questions that currently excite me concern the foundations of computational cognitive neuroscience, philosophy of science and moral psychology.

Philosophy of Science: Models and Mechanisms; Explanation; Values in Science; Unification; Realism vs. Instrumentalism.

Philosophy of Theoretical Neuroscience: Bayesian Modelling of Perception and Action; Reinforcement Learning and Dopamine Function; Network Neuroscience and Modularity.

Moral Psychology: Social Norm Compliance; Moral Conformism; Normative Learning and Social Rewards; The Notion of Caring; Interactions between Explanatory and Moral Judgement.
