Human Affective Neuroscience Lab




Welcome to the Human Affective Neuroscience (HumAN) lab! We are located at Sungkyunkwan University, in the heart of Seoul, South Korea. The overarching goal of our research is to understand the psychological and neurobiological mechanisms that underpin how we experience our own emotions and evaluate the emotions of others. 

At the HumAN lab, we examine how different aspects of affective information are encoded, manipulated, and integrated in the brain. We also investigate individual differences in such processes on both behavioral and neural levels, and their implications for mental health. We combine experimental psychology, functional neuroimaging (fMRI), and computational tools to answer research questions pertaining to affective science.
