Gina Grimshaw leads the Laboratory for Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. Research in her lab is focused on two questions.
The first concerns the relationship between cognition and emotion - how emotion affects cognitive processes like attention and language, but also how cognitive processes can be used to control or regulate our emotional responses.
The second line of research concerns the cognitive and neural processes we use to create novel ideas or interpretations.
Both questions are pursued using a range of methods including behavioural experiments, recordings of neural and physiological responses, brain stimulation, and the study of individual differences.
