Seminar – Sarah Garfinkel on ‘Emotion in Body and Brain: the Biological Basis of Empathy’

In the sixth paper in our 2020/21 seminar series, Sarah Garfinkel from University College London explores the physiology of loneliness and its relationship with other emotional states.

Signatures of emotions are captured in body physiology, And as social beings, both our own and others’ emotions are expressed in the brain and body, thus revealing the biological basis of empathy. This talk will detail how emotion is shared between individuals, and how loneliness is entwined with states of depression and anxiety.

This seminar will take place online.
