Established in 2022 with the help of an Infrastructure Grant from the Carlsberg Foundation, NeuroLab studies a variety of topics at the intersection of digitalization and the brain sciences, including online collaboration, online altruism, privacy, and cybersecurity. We do this by combining theories and methods from cognitive neuroscience with theories and methods from the social sciences, in particular the field of Information Systems.
Our goal at NeuroLab is to perform research that can link individual behaviors and decisions with larger socio-technical patterns in digital environments. To do this, we perform research using a range of neuroscience and neurophysiological tools, including eye tracking, electroencephalography (EEG), skin conductance, heart rate measurement, facial electromyography, respiration, and virtual reality (VR). We also combine these tools with other competencies, including online experiments, big data analytics, and longitudinal field research.
