The lab uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study the neural bases of human emotional processing.
The lab's members look at how the detection of environmental stimuli (that signal impending danger) may interact with other brain processes, such as attention, memory and awareness.
This research should be particularly relevant for the understanding of certain anxiety disorders, especially PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).
