Zachary Yaple

From my experiences and general interests in psychology I have found myself pondering questions related to selective attention, conflict processing and decision making. Recently I have became interested in a growing field; neuroeconomics. Although traditional behavioral experiences provide us with very interesting findings, by using neuroimaging devices we are able to understand these cognitive mechanisms more thoroughly.

Recently, I have began interested Neuroeconomics. Currently, I am examining the tendency for respondents to choose between risk and certainty options under gains and losses while stimulated with transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS). I hypothesize that tACS is able to modulate risk taking behavior  in a frequency-specific manner, when stimulating the left DLPFC.

In addition to my background in applied research, I have also contributed to basic research fields such as visual perception and attention. During my Master's thesis I was involved in a research project that examined a neural model of selective attention. From this experience I had gained a vast knowledge of the ERP technique, visual perception and neurological mechanisms involving top-down processing.
