The causal role of the temporoparietal junction in trust decision: a combined TMS and fMRI study

  • English language proficiency required
  • Amsterdam

University of Amsterdam


We are looking for a research intern for this Social Neuroscience / Neuroeconomics project on the causal role of the TPJ in trust decisions. We use cTBS to stimulate left and right TPJ and subsequently scan participants using fMRI while they make trust decisions in different trust game contexts (using a minimal group paradigm in one context and the possibility to punish trustees in another).

If you are interested, or wish to know more about this ongoing, large scale project, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Since we already started with piloting, this project will get started very soon, so we are looking for someone immediately.

All the best,

Jan Engelmann
