The SAN team gathers together three PIs with complementary expertise in affective neuroscience, social neuroscience, and psychiatry. Our project focuses on the functional neuroanatomy of the emotional brain. We study the brain systems of emotion detection, evaluation, and regulation, with an emphasis on how social processes (eg social inclusion) activate and regulate the emotional brain. Dysfunction of the emotional brain is central to many mental disorders and in particular to major depressive disorder (MDD).
