The main goal of this research program is to explore the behavioral, physiological and neural bases of emotional processing in healthy humans and in individuals suffering from psychiatric and neurological disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and epilepsy. To do se, we employ state-of-the-art techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging. Results from our research should help clinicians develop new treatments, as improve existing ones, for these disorders and therefore improve the quality of life of the patients and their families.
