Research interests: neuroscience of affect, pre-attentive perception of threat , cortical and subcortical processing networks for primary emotion, cerebral lateralisation of affect, automatic responses to threat-related stimuli. My doctoral research explores the neurological pathways underlying primary emotional processing and visual attention. Prevalent themes in my research include the pre-attentive processing of threat; speed-accuracy trade off as a function of anxiety in the perception of primary emotions; approach/avoidance responses to perceived threat; and the exploration of individual differences in amygdala volume as a marker of differential and lateralised responses to emotional stimuli. My thesis posits a modulation of lateralised response patterns to positive and negative affect by timing, individual differences, nasal/temporal display of emotional stimuli, and auditory threat.
