Welcome to the Affective Cognition Lab

   The Affective Cognition Lab at Korea University pursues research in the area of emotional cognition. We combine behavioral and neuroscientific techniques to understand how emotional information is processed in the brain and what consequences may be derived in other cognitive process and behavior. We are also interested in knowing how we exert our conscious and unconscious control over the course of emotion generation processes and to what extent we can modulate authentic emotional responses. We examine the relevant questions by investigating healthy normal people as wells as people with emotional disorders. We emphasize individual difference factors such as personality traits that play key roles in defining individuals’ characteristics and in determining their emotional and social life.
