Research and Career[edit]

Lieberman's work has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, National Science Foundation, Guggenheim Foundation, DARPA,[5] and the Office of Naval Research.[6]

Lieberman conducts research into the neural bases of social cognition and social experience, with particular emphasis on the neural bases of emotion regulation, persuasion, social rejection, self-knowledge, theory of mind, and fairness. Lieberman coined the term social cognitive neuroscience.[7] His research interests also include Neural Bases of Automatic and Controlled Social Cognition & Affect and Neural Bases of Personality.Social cognitive neuroscience focuses on how the human brain carries out social information processing. Lieberman uses functional neuroimaging (fMRI) and neuropsychology to test new hypotheses regarding social cognition.[8]

Lieberman is the founding editor of the journal, Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience.[9]

In 2007, he won the APA Distinguished Scientific Award for an Early Career Contribution to Psychology.[10]

In 2011, he was the recipient of UCLA Gold Shield Faculty Prize.[11]
