Depression and Anxiety Neuroscience
Our aim is to develop integrated models based on affective neuroscience for treatment-oriented research and discovery in mood and anxiety disorders.
Large-scale brain functional systems; emotion, affect and self-related processes; brain-body interactions.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI); psychophysiological monitoring, experimental cognitive and affective neuroscience.
