Research Interests
The broad goal of the research in our laboratory is to understand the neural basis of emotion. We use non-human primates as a model system for normal and pathological emotions generated in the context of social behavior. �The experiments involve eliciting emotions in freely behaving monkeys while recording neural activity from several brain areas in conjunction with cardiovascular and other autonomic measurements. These experiments reveal the real-time dynamic interaction of multiple systems implicated in emotion regulation and the mechanisms by which emotional responses produce immediate behavioral effects.
