With her research, Valeria aims at unravelling the neural bases of empathy and at understanding how empathy-related neuronal responses inform and influence social decision-making and other-regarding behaviour.  The current project will focus on identifying the neural basis of individual differences in how people resolve situations in which goals for the self are in conflict with goals for others.
