Prof. Dr. Soyoung Q Park is professor of Social psychology and Decision Neuroscience since 2014 at the University of Lübeck, Germany. She investigates the interplay of brain, body and behavior during human decision making processes. Her specific interest lies in the neural, metabolic and physiological mechanisms underlying reward-based decision making and decision making in social contexts. She studied Psychology at the Institute of Technology Berlin, during which she investigated the neural processes of reinforcement learning. During her PhD at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt University Berlin, she investigated the neural mechanisms underlying reward-based decision making processes in healthy humans. During her postdoctoral training at the Economics Department, University of Zurich in Switzerland, her research focused on neural processes of prosocial decisions.
