Human amygdala lesions, social cognition and threat
A body of literature suggests specific contribution of human amygdala to social cognition and threat perception such as detection of emotional expression in others. However, data are still controversial. We have collected a range of social cognition, threat perception/prediction and control tasks in
The emergence of subjective feelings during foraging under predation threat
Non-human approach-avoidance conflict tests are classic paradigms to elicit anxiety-like behaviours, and mimick aspects of foraging for food while under threat of predation. We have recently translated this class of paradigms to humans (e. g. Bach et al. 2014, Current Biology; Korn et al. 2017, Biological Psychiatry). However, it is unclear how behaviour in this paradigm relates to subjective feeling.
Predicting search trajectories in a computer game
The goal of this project is to understand human cognition in a computer game and predict behaviour of individual humans.
