We study vocal communication, music, and emotion, and we are based at Iscte – University Institute of Lisbon. How do we recognize emotions from voices? How does our brain gain meaning from sound? How does musical experience affect emotional skills? We address these and related questions using experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience approaches.

Principal Investigator: Dr. César Lima, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Iscte and honorary research associate at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience
