Emotion regulation, reward-related neural activity, and well-being

A fully funded studentship awarded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership (SCDTP) commencing in 2019/20 Academic Year.

 

Supervisory Team:

Dr Nicholas Kelley (Psychology) (nicholasjkelley@gmail.com)

 

Emotion regulation contributes to consequential outcomes like physical health, mental health and success in work, school, and relationships. Previous research has investigated the effects of emotion regulation on threat processing, but has neglected the role of emotion regulation in reward processing, despite the relevance of reward processing to consequential outcomes like mood disorders and addictive behaviors. Here we ask how emotion regulation influences reward processing and whether biomarkers of reward processing account for links between emotion regulation and changes in consequential outcomes over time.

 

Skills Required

Experience w/EEG required. Experience w/MatLab and SEM desirable.
