PhiLab is an interdisciplinary lab which investigates human social interaction by combining research in cognitive neuroscience, experimental economics, experimental philosophy, anthropology, sociology, and ethnography.

Our research projects explore perception, action and emotions in social contexts, verbal and non-verbal behaviour in mundane interaction, as well as cognitive processes such as memory, attention and decision-making.

We take both a pure and applied research approach, with a strong emphasis on collaboration across disciplines.

PhiLab is based in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Milan (Italy) and is funded by the “Department of Excellence” project.
