The Neuroscience of Cognition and Affection is housed in the Medical Physics Laboratory of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. The group’s mission is to serve the community needs by endeavoring (a) to investigate human emotions, (b) to evaluate the effectiveness of non-pharmaceutical interventions of physical and cognitive stimulation, and (c) to understand how these interventions nurture cognitive health and emotional well-being throughout the life span of both healthy population as well as cognitively challenged patients. Central to these efforts has been the group’s dedication to fuse the emerging field of affective computing and affective medicine1,2 with neuroscientific research3 in an attempt to study the topography4 and neural sources5,6 of human emotions, their oscillatory and synchronisation mechanisms7, how these are affected by alcohol consumption8, or aged decline9 or in stressed everyday situations10 as well as how affective technology can be used to educate children with emotional deficits11.
