Our aim is to develop experimental models based on affective neuroscience for treatment-oriented research and discovery in mood and anxiety disorders.
Large-scale brain functional systems; emotion, affect and self-related processes; brain-body interactions.
Please contact us to discuss specific projects.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI); psychophysiological monitoring, experimental cognitive and affective neuroscience.
