Talk Title: “Inside Out: Psychophysiological Measures Reveal Individual Differences in Valence Bias”
Abstract: Individuals tend to show high consensus in ratings of clearly valenced stimuli (e.g., happy or angry faces). However, valence ratings of emotional ambiguous stimuli (e.g., surprised faces) vary greatly and constitute what we call an individual’s valence bias. Although typically consistent over time, ratings of ambiguity become more positive following training in cognitive reappraisal. This talk will show what electrodermal activity and facial electromyography reveal about individual differences in valence bias and about this shift toward positivity as a function of emotion regulation.
MRI Users Workshops are monthly informal gatherings for users who are interested in getting to know each other and talking science. The workshop is open to all, and students and postdocs are particularly encouraged to attend.
Workshops are taking on a new format this semester- they will involve a short presentation of work (15-25 minutes) with an extended discussion at the end. The presentations will be live-streamed and recorded in collaboration with the OnNeuro platform, check it out here! Refreshments will be provided!
Workshops take place on the fourth Friday of each month at 1:00pm, in the Psychology Building, Room 217. To receive meeting details and related MRI announcements, please complete a request form and specify that you would like to be added to the CCBBI mailing list.
