Smith Pasqualini, Ph.D
We are studying emotion regulation in situations involving social evaluation. In our laboratory we use a variety of measures, including videotape analysis using Noldus Observer, and psychophysiological measurement using Nexus Biotrace and Mindware Biolab equipment.
Previously, we investigated the effects of neurofeedback on cognition
and mood, in conjunction with researchers in England,
Denmark, and Russia, and funded
by the Bial Foundation of Portugal.
Dr. Pasqualini's earlier research included investigations
of facial expression and emotion in people with Parkinson's
disease, Alzheimer's disease and Down's syndrome, as well
