What we do
We study human emotions and the various cognitive and psychophysiological processes associated with them. Since emotions possess a strong social component, we also look at their relationship with social context. Currently, we are mainly interested in the study of emotions in cyber space communication (see official website of the EU consortium CyberEmotions and CyberEmotions on Wikipedia) and in the application of technology for enhancing cultural understanding (see official website of the EU consortium eCUTE). In Decmber 2012 a new project, EMOTE, also linked to affective computing, started.
