Why do emotional experiences feel the way they do, and how do the feelings we have influence what we remember later on? To understand these questions, I study factors that influence the intensity of current feelings (with a focus on the feeling of pain), and how the emotional intensity that visual images evoke influences people's subsequent memory for images. My main interest is in the mechanisms that underly the intersection of emotional and cognitive processes - with an interest in cognitive, compuational and neurobiological mechanisms. The techniques used at the lab include behavioural experiments with healthy adults, EEG, fMRI and compuational models.
