Paola Romano

Visiting student, 2018

After completing a Bsc in Psychology, and a Msc from University of Turin, Italy, in “Body and Mind Sciences” I will now spend the next year attending a 1000 hours’ traineeship in order to obtain the license for the profession of psychologist. My research interests regard affective and cognitive neuroscience, neural basis of social interaction and clinical psychology. I am currently spending a six months’ internship at Karolinska Institutet in Emotion Lab, and my supervisors are Andreas Olsson and Lisa Espinosa. The research we are conducting regards the way in which threat can influence emotional experience, and the role of social support as a main predictor of PTSD symptoms severity.
