“Hardwired to connect with each other, we do so through emotions. Our brains, bodies and minds are inseparable from the emotions that animate them" (pg. vii) Fosha, Siegel, & Solomon (2009)
The study of the emotional life of our brains attempts to understand and explain our ability to process emotions and channel them into healthy actions, with the goal of building accurate theoretical models and tools of intervention. This goal has occupied philosophers, psychologists and writers for many centuries. However, only recently the emergence of the field known as Affective Neuroscience has offered a valuable avenue to understand our emotions. We seek to investigate how we perceive, modulate and express our emotions in normal and abnormal conditions. Failures in correctly perceiving, modulating, and even expressing our emotions lie at the core of many psychopathological conditions. Building on findings and tools derived from Neuroscience and Clinical Psychology, our mission is to develop new methods and procedures to ameliorate such problems.
