Research

The Affect & Cognition Lab (ACL) is an interdisciplinary research group focusing on the psychological and neural foundations of emotion and cognition. We employ a variety of methodological approaches including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), peripheral psychophysiology, computational modeling, and rat models to investigate how the brain gives rise to complex mental events, such as emotions, attention, learning and memory. The principal investigators, Drs. Adam Anderson and Eve De Rosa, are faculty in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto.
