Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.

My research involves studying the neural mechanisms responsible for processing social signals.  I am particularly interested in understanding how context affects the processing of emotion from faces, and how we combine emotion information from different signals using a social cue integration framework. Furthermore, my work will explore how children develop this ability to process multiple social cues. The importance of context in emotion research has only recently become clear and appears to play a fundamental role when an observer is making an emotional judgement. In order to answer these types of questions, I primarily use MRI and psychophysical techniques.
