SCoNeLab Members

  • Principle Investigator

  • Damian A. Stanley is an assistant professor of Psychology at Adelphi University and a visiting professor at the California Institute of Technology. After completing his Ph.D. investigating the neural mechanisms of mid-level vision at New York University in 2005, he turned his focus toward developing a computational account of the neurocognitive processes through which we learn about and represent other people and social groups. To accomplish this he uses computational models of behavior and model-based brain-imaging to characterize typical and atypical (e.g. in autism spectrum disorder) social learning and decision-making. In his spare (haha) time he enjoys making fresh pasta, cooking, hiking, camping, good food, live music, and general socializing.
