Mission

Psychoneuronet is an universitary and inter-university working-team involving professors and researchers from many research areas, such as Neuroscience, Psychophysiology, Cognitive Psychology, and Communication Psychology. They all work with the Department of Psychology of the Catholic University of Milan, as well as, all over of international contexts. Neuroscience of mental and emotional functions in the social field, such as emotion and empathy, communication and language production and comprehension, consciousness and agency, action representation, neuroeconomics, as well as psychopathological contexts, are the core topics of the research group. The main activities are those dealing with research projects focused on the study of the mind and the relationships between cognitive processes, social contexts, and neural networks. The research receives contributions from different disciplines (neuroscience, psychophysiology, neuropsychology, psychology, social sciences) which study the relationship between mind and brain. Neuroscience and psychophysiology provide the main theoretical and methodological framework for the analysis of these topics. Specific skills are devoted to the application of neuroscientific techniques, such as electrophysiology (EEG, ERPs; LORETA); neurostimulation/neuromodulation (TMS; tES); neuroimaging (fNIRS); autonomic measures (SCR; ECG); eye-tracking (Heat Map, Gaze Plot).
