Abstract: 
This is an fMRI project on Cognitive Dissonance. The objective of the programme is to identify the neural substrate of cognitive dissonance. In a 2x2 baseline design dissonance will be induced in participants in the experimental condition. The control conditions should not generate dissonance It is hypothesised that only the experimental condition will lead to combined activation of anterior cingulated cortex and pre frontal lobe.
