*Biography*: Dr Deborah Talmi is a cognitive neuroscientist, interested in emotional cognition – the effect that emotional value has on our cognitive system. The core of her research is the emotional value of the events that we experience. To induce emotional value in the lab she uses monetary reward, pain and taste stimuli, and pictures that depict distressing scenes. Her aim is to understand how our brains convert such input to neural representation of value and subjective feelings. Her main focus is on how the emotional value of experience influences later memory for these experiences.
