Cognitive neurosciences

Beatrice de Gelder and her team investigate emotion and cognition in humans. Their projects include investigations of emotion and cognition in neurologically intact participants, but also in patients with focal brain lesions, and prosopagnosia, neuropsychiatric populations such as people with schizophrenia, autism and Williams syndrome. They use behavioral methods, electrophysiology, EMG, as well as functional imaging.

In 2011 professor De Gelder has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant by the European Research Council (ERC).
