Affect & Cognition Lab Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG.

Research volunteers

Our studies involve a variety of different games and cognitive tasks. Some studies also involve functional brain imaging while you play these games. If you are over the age of 60 and think you might be interested in participating in a research study, please email us at m.sakaki [at]

Prospective students and postdocs

We are looking for motivated students (both in MSc and Ph. D. programmes) and postdocs who are interested in learning more about the interaction between emotion and cognition. Students who are interested in cognitive ageing are also welcome. If you would like to join, please email Michiko Sakaki (with your CV) to discuss the possibility.
