Michael S. Cohen, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Researcher (Senior Research Analyst)
University of Chicago


I am a postdoctoral researcher (Senior Research Analyst) in the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago, working with Dr. Jean Decety.

My current research interests are in understanding the psychological and neural mechanisms by which false information affects people's choices, especially in the political domain, as well as how these mechanisms change due to aging. I also have broader interests in how strategies and reward affect learning and decision-making.
