Social Cognitive Neuroscience Lab

What we do

The Kliemann lab studies the neuroscience of human social behavior, from a basic research perspective, as well as in its applications to psychiatric (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorders) and neurological (e.g., focal brain lesions) conditions. We are interested in the biological basis of cognition in the brain, especially how the brain compensates and re-organizes. How does variation in brain structure and function lead to intact or impaired social cognition? How can we use insights from neuroimaging to better understand the psychological mechanisms? We use a multimodal approach (including behavioral, eye-tracking, lesion studies, structural and functional MRI) to study brain-cognition-behavior relations that ultimately produce complex social cognition.
