The researchers of the NEAD group conduct their experiments using different kinds of methods able to investigate the brain processes related to emotional processes. The facilities including functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Near InfraRed Spectroscopy (NIRS), electroencephalography (EEG), and peripheral measures such as electromyography and skin conductance are located at the Campus Biotech, the Faculty of Psychology and Educational sciences and at the Central Medical University at the Brain and Behaviour Laboratory.
