BoKyung Park, PhD
UT Dallas

Dr. Park examines how individuals' cultural backgrounds can shape their social, cognitive, and affective processing. She is particularly interested in the neural mechanisms underpinning how culture influences individuals' moral judgments, how culture shapes one's desired affective states, and how culture explains people's theory of mind across different social and relational contexts.
