I am a postdoctoral researcher and my main research question is investigating the brain mechanisms that allow us to understand the emotions of others. For this I have worked on developing and characterizing rodent models of emotional contagion and  then combining them with a variety of methods such as in vivo electrophysiology, autoradiography, behavior pharmacology and calcium imaging to get an insight of neuronal activity in the behaving animals. In addition, I am working on identifying the main factors that modulate the emotional contagion response in rodents (e.g., level of familiarity or previous experience with stressor).
