The goal of Dr. Gu’s research program is two-fold: 1) to help re-define and eventually improve human mental health; 2) to understand the neural and computational mechanisms of decision-making and social behavior. The lab uses a highly interdisciplinary approach, which involves the integration of theories and methods from cognitive neuroscience, behavioral economics, psychology, psychiatry, mathematics, biophysics, computer science, and so on.
