Embarrassment is a social emotion that arises during interaction with our social environment. Due to the human ability to infer and share others’ emotions, thoughts or intentions, embarrassment is also often experienced vicariously. In her research, Laura Müller-Pinzler studies the neural and physiological correlates of embarrassment in its vicarious form. She focuses specifically on treating both forms of embarrassment as social phenomena and on the implementation and development of related social paradigms.
