Chih-Chung Ting


I am a PhD student at CREED under the supervision of Jan Engelmann since September 2016. After I obtained my bachelor’s degree in psychology, I worked with Professor Shih-Wei Wu and did my M.Sc in Cognitive Neuroscience at Yang-Ming University in Taiwan. To study social decision making and moral judgment, I worked as a research assistant at the Brain and Consciousness Research Center for one year.

My research interests involve emotion, social interaction and the computations underlying decision-making. To know how affective and social components influence various types of decisions, and how the brain processes information under specific emotional states, I will start a series of experiments and investigate the underlying behavioral and neural mechanisms. Currently, I am working with Jan to study how anxiety impacts our learning performance.
