Gert-Jan MunnekePhD candidate Logic and Cognition since July 2013

'How do people handle moral dilemmas? Sometimes we can respond promptly on the basis of a gut reaction whereas in other situations deliberate reasoning seems required. In our research, we utilize an interdisciplinary toolkit combining methods from formal logic and ethics to neuro-cognitive psychology in order to understand the nature of reoccurring reasoning patterns that are typical of what we consider 'right' and 'wrong'.'
