Emotion representation in the brain
How does emotional information change how our brain functions?
Where do emotional signals get processed?
how do they change our internal representation of the world?
To answer these questions we use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in concert with established behavioural paradigms and novel analytic techniques. We aim to leverage innovation in stimuli presentations (visual illusion, virtual auditory environments) to create naturalistic emotional experience in the scanner, and analyse out data through combined multivariate and univariate approaches.
