Our Research

We are interested in the role of the amygdala in processing affective and social signals such as facial expressions.

Our studies use naturalistic, ethologically valid stimuli that span multiple sensory modalities.

We combine information from spontaneous and learned behaviors, neural recordings, and autonomic variables to characterize emotions as coordinated brain-body states.
