The Affective Neuroscience Laboratory is housed in the Department of Psychology at Vanderbilt University. The lab’s mission is to understand the neural and neuropharmacological systems involved in emotion and motivation, and the relationship of individual differences in these circuits to personality and psychopathology. Work in the laboratory includes functional neuroimaging with both PET and fMRI, neuropsychological studies of patients with specific brain lesions, rTMS studies to temporarily disrupt the functioning of specific brain regions, and psychological studies examining the interaction of emotion and attention.
