Emotion And Cognition

The aim of this line of research is to clarify the relations between attention, cognitive control, personality, and emotion. Central questions are:

  1. What attentional mechanisms are mediated by anxiety?

  2. How the different types of anxiety (state, trait, clinical) modulate attention?

  3. What are the relations between cognitive control and emotional regulation?
