Affective Science explores how positive and negative stimuli and events are related to brains & behaviours.

 

How does the brain encode subjective experiences?

Are our behaviours guided by unconscious emotions?

Is my sense of self intertwined with affect?

 

I explore these kinds of questions conceptually and with the use of behavioural measures & brain imaging.
