Georgia Emotion NeuroImaging Lab

The GEML is broadly interested in the brain mechanisms that underlie emotional stimulus processing. Through the use of noninvasive measures including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), dense-array electroencephalography (EEG), and peripheral psychophysiological recording, we investigate the functions of cortical and subcortical networks during emotional perception and imagery. Our research is generally consistent with the hypothesis that affective cues engage basic brain processes that have evolved to mediate appetitive and defensive behaviors. Tracking the action of the brain requires exquisite resolution in space and time, and thus our lab is also focused on refining the techniques used to acquire and analyze high-resolution brain imaging data.
