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.
