Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience
Research in the Adaptive Memory Group seeks to understand the neural and cognitive mechanisms that operate on our memories of the past to help us live in the future.
The Early Social Cogntion Group explores the development of cognitive functions such as action understanding, joint attention and social learning within the first years.
EGG-Lab Julia is a psychiatrist and neuroscientist interested in how hormones impact brain and behavior in health and disease. Our group uses apply multimodal neuroimaging techniques (PET & fMRI) to study changes in neurochemistry and neural activity in the female brain and how they relate to emotion and mood.
Recently, one of the most exciting research areas has been defined: Cognitive neuropsychiatry. This framework aims to explain clinical characteristics of neuropsychiatric disorders in terms of deficits to normal cognitive mechanisms and to link these deficits to brain structures.
The Department of Social Neuroscience investigates the foundations, development and plasticity of human social cognition and behaviour.
