Welcome to the Emotion Lab at Karolinska Institutet

We have moved to a new website. Visit it here.

Director: Andreas Olsson, Ph.D.

The overarching goal of our research is to understand how emotional information is transmitted, learned and regulated in social situations. We are particularly interested in the neural mechanisms underlying responses to threat, aversions, and safety, and how these processes interact with social cognition, decision-making, and attention, to produce behavior.
