Research group: Behavioural and Social Neuroscience - Milan Brázdil

Job description

Research Interests: My research interests lie mainly in the area of individual differences in social cognition, emotion, and decision-making in both healthy and clinical populations. Using self-report, behavioural, psycho- and neurophysiological data, I investigate how various facets of social cognition relate to each other, and evaluate experimental methods used to measure social cognition. In addition to traditional statistical approaches, my research utilises alternative person- and data-centred analytical techniques (e.g., latent class analysis, cluster analysis).
