13.02.2018 | Hella Kastbjerg

Marianne Tiihonen has just been enrolled at the Graduate School af Health and is here at Center for Music in the Brain to  finalize the last year of her PhD studies .

Marianne has a master´s degree from the University of Vienna, Austria where she studied musicology as her major and psychology as her minor. Currently she is also finalizing her second master´s degree in cognitive science, also at the University of Vienna.

Marianne´s main interest is in the neuroscience of affect and in critical neuroscience; which neural mechanisms underlie emotions? How emotion and cognition interact? How should the emotion related concepts be updated with the increasing empirical knowledge? In her PhD she is interested in the cross-modal interaction of visual and auditory cortices in regard to affect processing, and in particular, in that how those modalities interact neuronally and behaviourally.
