"The regulation of affective spillover: amygdala-prefrontal contributions"
Regina Lapate, PhD
Postdoctoral Researcher, UC Berkeley Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute
I am an affective neuroscientist interested in the neurobiological and behavioral processes that underlie adaptive responding to emotional events. My research examines questions such as: What is the function of conscious awareness in emotion? What are the neural mechanisms that underlie effective emotion regulation? How does attention training modulate emotion regulation? To interrogate these questions, I employ peripheral physiology, neuroimaging, electrophysiology, and transcranial magnetic stimulation, which I often combine with behavioral assays and analyses anchored in individual differences.
I obtained my PhD in Psychology with Dr. Richard Davidson at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow with Dr. Mark D'Esposito at the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, University of California, Berkeley.
