Interessi di ricerca

1) Affective and Social Neuroscience

In everyday life, we are all involved in situations and interactions that generate emotion. Our aim is to study the psychological and neural mechanisms of normal emotion generation and regulation by the usage of up to date neuroscientific methodologies.

2) Clinical Neuroscience

A recent view of psychopathology suggests that the majority of clinical syndromes (anxiety, depression, personality disorders, addictions…) are characterized and caused by a dysregulation of specific emotions. This area of research aims at studying the neural mechanisms behind abnormal emotion regulation in clinical populations. Another aim is to study the neural mechanisms behind new therapeutic techniques and protocols designed to treat emotional deficits.

Attività di ricerca

Please visit the Clinical and Affective Neuroscience Lab webpage for further details ( http://r.unitn.it/en/dipsco/clian )

1) Neural bases of emotion perception and regulation (fMRI, EEG, MEG, tDCS)

2) Brain morphometric analyses of clinical disorders (anxiety, bipolars, schizophrenia, personality disorders) (sMRI)

3) Abnormal emotional processing in neurological patients (brain tumors and ischemic patients)

4) Development of treatment protocols to treat emotion regulation deficits
