Research

Overview

Investigating dynamic changes in physiology, ongoing thoughts, and neural patterns during emotional states using naturalistic stimuli.

Projects

We are investigating how ongoing thought patterns and neural responses change during threatening situations using naturalistic stimuli such as movies and virtual reality. Moreover, we hope to investigate the role of uncertainty and its effects on cognition and physiology during threatening situations.

Research group(s)

I work in the mind-wandering lab led by Prof. Jonny Smallwood and the LifeLike lab led by Dr. Cade McCall.
