Emotions are an extremely important part of our lives. The capacity to influence how we experience, express, and regulate emotions impacts how we cope with emotional fluctuations and adversities experienced in daily life. Neuroimaging techniques such as functional MRI and EEG offer an avenue to understand the neural mechanisms that underlie emotion processing. These cutting edge techniques allow us to non-invasively probe the human brain and understand the emotion brain circuitry involved in emotion processing. This project opportunity will involve learning fMRI techniques to map the core human emotion brain circuitry and understand how this circuitry changes with neurodevelopment and in mental disorders.
