Tammi is interested in exploring the neural and behavioral mechanisms underlying emotional experience, its regulation and relationship with pro-social behavior.
In her graduate work, she uses a combination of functional brain imaging and behavioral measures to investigate emotion as well as the effects of meditation and behavioral interventions. She is currently researching the neural correlates of empathy in adolescents and the impact of video game-based training on empathy and pro-social behavior.
