Interdisciplinary Research on Emotions in Neuroscience and Philosophy

Dina Maria Schardt, Dipl.-Psych.



After studying psychology and clinical neurology at the Universities of Frankfurt, Barcelona and Bremen I graduated in 2005 with main subjects Clinical and Neuropsychology. My diploma thesis was based on a combined event-related potential (ERP) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study concerning the spatial and temporal dynamics of involuntary attention switching. In the framework of animal emotionale I am working on Project 2 – Emotional self-regulation and cognitive control. My focus in this project lies on the self-regulation of negative emotions. More specifically, I am interested in the neural, behavioral and psychophysiological measures of emotion processing and their interactions with genetic predispositions and gender. Additionally, I am interested in the neural mechanisms underlying the experience of positive emotions, such as love and physical attraction. Methodologically, I want to evolve in the fields of programming and high-level functional imaging techniques.
