The research program consists in investigating appraisal processes in emotion, and their effects on attention and memory, using the experimental approaches of cognitive neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience. This line of research brings together behavioral data as well as brain imaging data from healthy subjects and brain-damaged patients in order to better understand the emotional response to relevant visual, auditory, or olfactory stimuli. In particular, we test the computational profile of the human amygdala in order to constrain psychological models of emotion.
