Research interests

My research takes a cognitive neuropsychiatric approach to the study of emotion regulation in healthy controls and clinical groups where these processes have gone awry. To this end, I have recently been granted a Varela award by the Mind and Life Institute to examine the influence of different types of self-processing on emotion regulation. I am also interested in the impact of these processes on empathy and emotion perception. <br /> <br /> A further theme is functional neuronal development across the lifespan and the processes of neural plasticity, and I am involved in a project with Dr Chiara Nosarti, using fMRI to probe neural development in adults who were born premature or &rsquo;preterm&rsquo;<br /> <br /> My research tools are cognitive experimentation, psychophysiological measures, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI. We are also using functional MRI (fMRI) with rapid data transfer and analysis methods (real-time fMRI) in collaboration with the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences at the IOP, and the University of Tubingen. This technique enables brain activation data to be fedback to participants a few seconds after data collection, in neural feedback paradigms. <br /> <br /> Please see my website for more information about my research:<br />
