Matthew Lieberman received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1999. Dr. Lieberman helped coin the term Social Cognitive Neuroscience, which has become a thriving area of research over the past decade. Dr. Lieberman has been a professor at UCLA in the departments of Psychology, Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences since 2000. His work uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the neural bases of social cognition and social experience. In particular, his work has examined the neural bases of emotion regulation, persuasion, social rejection, self-knowledge, and fairness. His research has been published in top scientific journals including Science, Nature Neuroscience, American Psychologist, and Psychological Science. His research has been funded by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, National Science Foundation, Guggenheim Foundation, and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. His work has received coverage in the New York Times, Time magazine, Scientific American, and Discover Magazine. Dr. Lieberman is also the founding editor of the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. Dr. Lieberman won the APA Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Psychology (2007).
