Affective Neurolinguistics and Cognition Group
Human beings are immersed in a constantly changing environment. These changes have an impact at both the individual and the social levels. Dealing with a world full of complexity requires the display of diverse cognitive and affective resources. In our lab we are interested in exploring the neural and behavioral mechanisms that underlay perceptual, memory or inhibitory processes with an especial focus on high level language functions and their interaction with affective variables. Our studies assess patterns of brainwaves and overt responses in everyday life tasks such as seeing, touching, reading or inhibiting responses. Our global aim is to understand how we successfully cope with the astonishing world we all live in.
