Matthew Moore

Matt Moore completed his Ph.D. in Psychology with Drs. Florin and Sanda Dolcos at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2018. He is currently a Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellow at UIUC. His primary research interests include the examination of cognitive and affective processes through the investigation of human brain structure, brain function, and behavior, using complementary methodologies. In the area of social decision making, he uses techniques such as electroencephalography/event-related potentials (EEG/ERPs) to examine the influence of context (e.g., observed social interactions) with respect to decisions in tasks such as the Ultimatum Game. He also works in collaboration with the Dolcos group and Drs. Gabriele Gratton, Monica Fabiani, and Brad Sutton, using structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (s/fMRI), optical imaging (event-related optical signal, EROS; near-infrared spectroscopy, NIRS), as well as combinations of techniques (e.g., simultaneous fMRI-EEG- EROS), to examine aspects of cognitive control, emotion processing, and individual differences related to these processes.
