Research Lines

Our goal is to better characterize large-scale brain functional networks and the functional connectome development using measurements based on the neurovascular coupling (particularly functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy). With this approach associated with interdisciplinary, naturalistic and multilevel investigations, we seek to understand the neural and developmental bases of complex affective and social processes including, but not restricted to:

– Emotional discrimination and regulation

– Empathy for pain and prejudice

– Ideological beliefs and political preferences

– Lasting effects of childhood adversities on mental health

– Relations between socioeconomic status during development and affective processes
