Victor Shiramizu (ERC Postdoc) How do humans recognise kin?

I received my Ph.D from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN/Brazil) and my dissertation focused on individual differences in stress response through a life history perspective. I was a postdoc fellow at the Brain Institute (UFRN) and my project investigated the neuroendocrine mechanisms underlying decision-making during social dilemmas. I joined the Face Research Lab in April 2019 to work on the ERC-funded project "How Do Humans Recognise Kin?".
