Research interests:

My main research interests are affective neuroscience, neuroscience of language, brain plasticity, and neuroimaging methodology. In latest years I developed the Nencki Affective Picture System (including subset of Erotic material) and Nencki Affective Word List. My recent research is focused on brain plasticity.
