Bradley Mattan, Ph.D.

Portrait of Bradley Mattan
Postdoctoral Fellow, Communication Neuroscience Lab

Mattan is a postdoctoral researcher at the Annenberg School for Communication. He received his B.A. from the University of Notre Dame, his M.A. from the University of Chicago, and his Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham (U.K.). Brad is currently interested in understanding the links between social status, inequity, and health-related behaviors/outcomes. In particular, he is interested in how the relationship between inequality and health outcomes may be explained by stress and neural responses to health-related cues (e.g., cigarette ads). Prior to joining the Communication Neuroscience Lab, Brad spent some time as a postdoctoral fellow with the Impression Formation Social Neuroscience Lab at the University of Delaware using fMRI, TMS, and implicit/self-report methods to examine how status cues are perceived and how they influence the way we evaluate and pay attention to others.
