Emily Finn

Bio: Emily Finn is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College. She completed her Ph.D. in neuroscience at Yale, and her postdoctoral training at the National Institute of Mental Health. Before that, she received a B.A. in linguistics, also from Yale. As the director of the Functional Imaging & Naturalistic Neuroscience (FINN) Lab, her work is focused on individual variability in brain activity and behavior, especially as it relates to appraisal of ambiguous information under naturalistic conditions (i.e., watching movies, listening to stories). She is particularly interested in how and why different individuals can arrive at different interpretations of the same information, and when and where this divergence can be detected and predicted from high-dimensional patterns of brain activity.
