Research summary

Emotions are an important part of our daily lives. Doing my research I hope to gain a better understanding in how emotion processing works in the brain. One aspect of my project deals with the difficulties involved in obtaining brain activation measures during emotion processing. On the other hand, I am investigating the role of the neurotransmitter GABA in emotion processing, and specifically in fear processing.
