In 2011 Filip Morys finished his bachelor’s degree in Cracow, Poland, in neurobiology. His thesis concerned the neuropsychology of prospective memory. 2 years later he received a master’s degree in medical neurosciences in Berlin at the Charité Medical University, where he worked on decoding delayed intentions from human brain activity. His research interests include prospective memory, decision making, neuroscience of emotions and neurodegeneratory diseases. His current research concerns decision making in obesity, more specifically biasing decisions towards more advantageous choices in obese people. He will use behavioural techniques as well as functional magnetic resonance imaging.
