Bio: Liz Losin is cur­rently a post­doc­toral research asso­ciate in the Cog­ni­tive and Affec­tive Neu­ro­science Lab at Uni­ver­sity of Col­orado, Boul­der. She com­pleted her doc­toral train­ing in UCLA’s Inter­de­part­men­tal Neu­ro­science Pro­gram and the FPR-UCLA Cen­ter for Cul­tural Brain and Devel­op­ment where she inves­ti­gated the neural under­pin­nings of social and cul­tural learn­ing via imi­ta­tion. Broadly, her research inter­ests lie in com­bin­ing her train­ing in anthro­pol­ogy and neu­ro­science to explore the bidi­rec­tional rela­tion­ship between socio­cul­tural fac­tors and the brain. In her cur­rent research she is using fMRI and mul­ti­vari­ate analy­ses meth­ods to inves­ti­gate social and cul­tural influ­ences on behav­ioral and neural responses to pain.
