A first research topic is the integration of clinical psychology and neuroimaging in order to understand the detailed mechanisms mediating inter-individual differences in human behavior. Individual variability in emotion processing may be associated with genetic variations as well as with psychological predispositions. Our concept of dispositional affect (Arciero & Bondolfi, Selfhood, Identity and Personality Styles. Wiley & Blackwell, 2009) has been developed based on previous works bearing on the relationship between cognitive styles and attachment patterns in some psychopathological conditions. A second research topic, deals with the prediction and the etiopathogeny of recurrence in unipolar depression in an integrative perspective (psychological and biological factors).
