Martin Weiß is a postdoctoral researcher in the group for Translational Social Neuroscience at the University Hospital Würzburg.

He completed his PhD in 2020 in the research group for Differential Psychology, Personality Psychology and Psychological Diagnostics at the University of Würzburg (Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Johannes Hewig). In his dissertation, he investigated neural processes underlying the influence of emotional feedback on economic decisions making.
