NWO VICI for Christian Keysers
Prof. Christian Keysers (Brain & Cognition and Netherlands Brain Institute - Social Brain Lab)
From vicarious activations to neurons and social behaviour - a cross-species approach
How does our brain make the emotions of others catching? Keysers will measure which cells in the brain encode emotions and how the emotions of others influence our own. He will modify this brain activity to test how this alters social behaviour.
