Welcome to the Emotion Lab at Karolinska Institutet

Director: Andreas Olsson, Ph.D.

The overarching goal of our research is to understand the mechanisms of emotional learning and regulation in social situations. In particular, we study the learning of fear and other aversions and how these processes interact with social cognition, decision-making, and attention, to produce behavior. Our research is motivated by a functional-evolutionary perspective, drawing on theory and methods from several disciplines, including cognitive neuroscience, learning theory, social psychology, and psychophysiology.
