Steve Chang


Bio:

Steve Chang is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neurobiology. He has been at the forefront of using live social interaction paradigms in rhesus macaques for investigating the neural mechanisms of social decision-making and also examining how social motivation could be improved by neuromodulators both at the behavioral as well as at the level of single neurons.
