The research lab of Amanda Bruce, Ph.D. at the University of Missouri—Kansas City
We study the brain mechanisms of reward, incentive, and decision-making using behavioral measures, experimental economics, and functional neuroimaging techniques.
Broadly, we are interested in learning more about the brain’s role in motivated and rewarded behaviors.
Our team consists of UMKC graduate & undergraduate students, and collaborators from various universities.
We have several ongoing complementary research projects examining motivation and decision-making in children, adolescents, and adults.see more
