Patrícia Oliveira-Silva

Assistant Professor / Researcher

Generic Bio

Patrícia Oliveira-Silva is a PhD in Clinical Psychology, Professor of Neurosciences and Director of the Human Neurobehavioral Laboratory (HNL), a laboratory committed to teaching and carrying out research in the field of neurosciences that includes post-doctoral researchers and PhD, MA and undergraduate students. The main focus of her research is to explore the interaction between psychological and neurophysiological processes. More specifically she is interested in applying Neuroscience methods, predominantly psychophysiological, peripheral measures, to a spectrum of social behaviours and clinical conditions (including empathic responding, emotion regulation, pro-environmental behaviour and dementias). He has also been committed to interdisciplinary research, initiating two lines of research in collaboration with the CBQF, one related to a multidisciplinary perspective of consumer behaviour and the other focused on the development and validation of psychophysiological protocols for the evaluation of new commercial products. Her research has received funding from the Bial Foundation, FCT and CCDRN. Furthermore, she has advocated the importance of open science, strategic partnerships with industries and the internationalisation of Higher Education, and has organised and chaired several international events (Summer Schools, international conferences, etc.). She is currently assistant editor of the APA Psychology & Neuroscience journal, an invited member of the Affect, Personality and Embodied Brain - the APE group at Nottingham Trent University (UK) and one of the three FEP board members responsible for Internationalization, Research and Social Responsibility.
