Tom Johnstone

I am currently studying the neural basis of emotion and cognition at the W.M. Keck Laboratory for Functional Brain Imaging and Behavior. My research focuses on understanding the interaction between cognitive and affective processes using fMRI in conjunction with cognitive experimental techniques. The work also follows on from my PhD study of the nonverbal expression and perception of emotional prosody in speech at the Geneva Emotion Research Group.
