The Medical Psychology Division hosts the “Neuromodulation of Emotion (NEMO)” Research Group, which is a team of medical psychologists and clinician scientists with a background in psychiatry who work together in understanding emotion and improving the treatment of psychiatric disorders characterized by a lack of emotional equilibrium, including depression, anxiety and schizophrenia. By pursuing clinical studies in patients as well as preclinical studies in healthy volunteers, NEMO combines translational research strategies and integrates key insights from diverse methodological sources, including behavioral neuroscience, functional neuroimaging, and a broad range of brain stimulation techniques from neuronavigated TMS to DBS. Our research activities are centered around three core themes: (i) Oxytocin Neuroscience, (ii) Brain Stimulation for Depression, (iii) Schizophrenia Early Recognition & Intervention.
