Reading Emotions* is a research interest group, bringing together affective neuroscientists at the University of Reading, and our collaborators in the UK and internationally

We organise the annual Reading Emotions symposium, an inter-disciplinary affective neuroscience meeting. It is typically held in mid-June, in the beautiful campus of the University of Reading

Our research expertise covers:
  • Emotion perception and regulation
  • Emotional and regulatory development across the life-span
  • Emotion-cognition interaction, including decision-making, attentional and inhibitory processes
  • Pain, its experience, regulation and management
  • Genetics of socio-emotional behaviour
