Dr D. (Diamantis) Petropoulos Petalas
My research interests lie in areas related to political science, communication science and cognitive neuroscience, with a focus on psychophysiological processes that seem to govern socio-political ideologies and related behavioural phenomena. For instance, how do political beliefs determine decision-making, inference and judgement? Do individuals differ in the cognitive or emotional processing of information, based on political beliefs? I have a background in sociology and have worked with cognitive neuroscientific methods in projects that took an interdisciplinary approach. My work has been published in academic journals such as Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience, PlosOne, and Cognitive, Behavioural and Affective Neuroscience.
