Neurobiological basis of cognition and emotion

We want to understand the neural mechanism that underlie the recognition and processing of emotional information as a key factor of cognitive process regulation.

The aim of our research is to understand the neural mechanisms that underlie the recognition and processing of emotional information as a key factor in the regulation of cognitive processes.

This line of research focuses on how emotional regulation occurs in the context of both normal and pathological behavior at different developmental stages. The relationship between behavior and brain dynamics related to emotional processing is investigated by recording electroencephalographic activity (EEG) and event-related potentials (ERPs). It is also of interest to explore emotional processing activity in relation to other cognitive aspects of diverse complexity, such as perception, attention, interoception, and empathy, among others. This allows the development of an integrated cognition perspective that also considers an intersubjective context.
