My project aims to use neural measures to predict social and health behaviours in the real world. This is known as the brain-as-predictor approach (e.g. Berkman & Falk, 2013). The present project will make use of MR imaging (e.g. DTI and fMRI) along with wearable devices to apply this approach. It is hoped that this will provide advances in studying behaviour in a naturalistic context.
