Benedetto De Martino (Principal investigator)


I am a cognitive neuroscientist who works in the field of decision making and neuroeconomics. I did my PhD  at University College of London.  Here I began to study human decision making, integrating economics models with the tools of cognitive neuroscience with the aim of developing a more realistic account of economic behaviour. In 2008 I was awarded a Wellcome postdoctoral fellowship with Daniel Kahneman as mentor. I worked two years in the Department of Economics at Caltech with Colin Camerer. I am now a Sir Henry Dale Fellow (Royal Society & Wellcome Trust) at the University College London, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience where I am the Principal Investigator of the Decision Making Group. Contact me


Pradyumna Sepulveda Delgado (Lab manager)


My background is in engineering, brain imaging and neuroscience. I am a Biotech Engineer and MSc in Engineering from the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. I have finished MSc in Neuroscience program at King’s College London and I will start my PhD in the BdM lab next year. I am interested in the role that uncertainty has in decision and learning processes. In particular, I’m studying how action and values are integrated into the construction of confidence. Contact me
