About Ronald Sladky
Ronald Sladky is a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Vienna, Austria, at the Faculty of Psychology (Department of Cognition, Emotion, and Methods in Psychology). He teaches courses on cognitive science and predictive processing. His research focusses on the amygdala as well as emotion processing and social cognition in the human brain. In addition, he is always working on new neuroimaging, data processing, and modeling methods. One of these new methods is real-time functional MRI, where people can learn to regulate their own brain states while they are inside the MRI scanner. This method is not only a promising therapeutic tool it will also allow for completely new ways for discovering how our brains work.
