Tuesday Talk: The Neuroscience of Emotions with Faissal Sharif

About this event

Ever wondered where your feelings come from and how they shape your daily experiences? Are emotions perceived similarly across cultures? What is the role of language? Join us in exploring the captivating realm of the ‘Neuroscience of Emotions’, a talk that unveils the intricate workings of our emotional landscapes. Emotions extend beyond the boundaries of our brains, mapping onto our bodies and affecting changes within us.
We’ll also explore the profound connection between the neuroscience of emotions and prevalent mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Armed with this knowledge, you can navigate your own emotional landscape and gain insights into the feelings of those around you.
Faissal Sharif is a neuroscientist and journalist who centres his work on the convergence of the brain, technology, and society. With a robust academic foundation in neuroscience and neurotechnology spanning various institutions across the UK, Netherlands, US, and Hong Kong, he is at the forefront of cutting-edge research. At the University of Oxford, Faissal investigates biological markers of psychiatric symptoms and their treatment using neurotechnology. Simultaneously, he spearheads the Neuroethics division at the Institute for Internet & the Just Society, a forward-thinking think tank dedicated to addressing contemporary structural and societal challenges in our digital world.
