Description: In the past decade, theoretical models of modular architectures with cold cognitive and hot affective-emotional systems have been progressively revised. Nowadays, these mechanisms are suggested to be interwoven and even processed in shared underlying neurocircuitry. Particularly in naturalistic environments, we are confronted with complex, (socio-)emotional stimuli claiming attentional and working memory resources (e.g., a crying baby during home office or laughter in open-plan offices). However, the precise nature of emotion-cognition interactions is still subject to research. Within this project we aim to investigate the interaction of cognitive processes and concurrent emotional distraction with fNIRS and behavioral measures.
