Placing emotions at the heart of our mind

16/Jan/2014

Psychologist and researcher David Sander specialises in emotions and their effect on cognitive function. For his interdisciplinary research, he received the National Latsis Prize 2013 at a ceremony in Berne.

 


David Sander from the University of Geneva is an affective science researcher whose work brings together several different disciplines all related to emotions, including the humanities, psychology, neuroscience, information technology, law and economics. As a professor of psychology, Sander is convinced that psychological research will benefit from a conceptual analysis of philosophy combined with a better understanding of how our brain works. He advocates a multifaceted approach, firm in the belief that computer-generated imaging, psychophysiology, functional MRI, olfactometry and even virtual reality are all capable of teaching us more about the human mind. In recognition of his research, he received the National Latsis Prize 2013 today at a ceremony in Berne.
