How Cognitive Biases Inform Us About Psychopathology?

The CEI lab at the school of psychological sciences is settled in the University of Haifa. Our lab, directed by Prof. Hadas Okon-Singer, studies how biased cognitions interact with different emotional states and disorders (e.g. specific phobias, depression, anxiety disorders).

To this end, we combine paradigms derived from cognitive psychology, fMRI and EEG/ERP, autonomic measures, personality questionnaires and advanced analysis methods including machine learning based approaches. 

We implement this multi-method approach to understand the complexity of the neuro-cognitive mechanisms at the basis of emotion reactivity and control. This knowledge, in turn, is expected to result in diagnosis support-systems that are based on cognitive biases, as well as personalized cognition-based treatments.
