Emotional cognition lab

What we do

The lab carries out research on the interplay between emotion and cognition - feeling and thinking. Our research is focused on the impact of emotional value on memory and how it is represented in the brain.

  • Why - when - and how are emotional events remembered better than neutral ones? 
  • Does emotional memory in humans function in a similar way to the way it functions in animals?
  • How does the brain computes the value of opportunities that are both good and bad? 

These are just some examples of the questions about emotional cognition  that we strive to answer in our lab.
