Research in the Laboratory for the study of Emotion Elicitation and Expression (E3 Lab) investigates the cognitive and brain mechanisms involved in the appraisal of relevant stimuli, and how these processes elicit emotions, and modulate attention, memory,

Tecfa, Education & Technologies, UNIGE
Website
The Tecfa Research group works on the use of digital technologies in learning situations and their impact on cognitive and socio-cognitive processes. They are conducted from an educational perspective (impact on the processes and results of learning) and from an ergonomic perspective to optimize person-machine interactions.

Using an interdisciplinary approach that combines psychology, affective sciences, behavioral economics, and neuroscience, our research group aims to contribute to this “energy turn” by trying to understand the factors and mechanisms that drive decisions and behaviors related to sustainability, and to develop intervention strategies to promote a more sustainable lifestyle.

Neurology and Imaging of Cognition, LabNic
Website
Our lab is interested in understanding the neural mechanisms underlying experience-dependent changes in the adult human brain. Another main goal of our research is to study the relationship between sleep, emotion regulation, and psychiatric diseases.

Our laboratory is interested in studying the cerebral bases of cognition, perception, emotion, and consciousness. Our goal is to understand the neural correlates of normal cognitive processes in healthy people, as well as neuropsychological disorders after brain lesions in patients.
