Matt Dixon

Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychology

Matt is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University. He received his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of British Columbia. The overarching aim of his research is to understand the psychological and biological basis of motivation, decision-making, and emotion regulation strategy use in healthy and clinical populations. To this end, his research relies on theoretical models, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), behavioral tasks, and self-report data. A particular interest is how different facets of the mind can be modeled as a network of interacting components, and how this may be instantiated in large-scale brain networks including the default mode network, frontoparietal control network, and salience network.
