Biography

Samuel McClure heads the Decision Neuroscience Lab (DNL) in the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University, where he investigates the neural basis of decision making with the aim of connecting low-level biological processes to high-level behaviors.

This work has included physiological models of neuronal function, neural network models of reward learning, and system-level analysis of the interaction of brain systems during decision-making.

McClure's research incorporates computational models and empirical studies using behavioral and fMRI experiments.

Ongoing projects include:

  • function of the human midbrain dopamine system
  • neural basis of delay discounting
  • decision-making in competitive social environments
