Neural dynamics of moral language development

We are conducting a research study to investigate the language of values and its development in the brain.

 In particular, how the perceived meanings conveyed in the language are different among people, how these meanings conveyed in the language are constantly shaped and re-shaped by media exposure through embodied cognition, and how embodied meanings modulate one’s neural dynamics and behaviour. Electroencephalogram (EEG) experiments, a common non-intrusive research method in the field of neuroscience, will be conducted to examine neural activities involved. Taking part in this study is voluntary.
