Sara J Knauz
I am a PhD student in the Cognitive and Brain Sciences co-advised by Wilma Koutstaal and Shmuel Lissek. A biologically trained neuroscientist who has shifted into imaging and cognition, I am interested in research questions which connect neural activity with emotional information processing. I want to know how the brain determines which sensory-perceptual experiences are emotional, in which way(s) they are or are not emotional, and what repercussions this may have for the person's cognition and behavior. My current research examines individual differences in evaluating emotional objects. You can find me in Elliott Hall S515.
