About the CARE International Seminar

Over the last years the interest on behavioral sciences and the association between affective processes and self-regulation has increased. This association has a significant impact on normal emotional development and the development of psychopathology. Executive functions, self-regulation, and particularly metacognition modulate the expression and development of emotional aspects across the lifespan. Therefore, the Center of Attachment and Emotional Regulation, associated with the Faculty of Psychology at the Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD), is convening four specialists in the experimental study of subjectivity, emotion, psychopathology and metacognition in Chile.
The activity will take place on Thursday, November 14th at Palacio Las Majadas de Pirque. 
The workshop is an opportunity for researchers and academics to learn about the latest advances in sciences and meet the main national and international investigators interested in the topic to establish scientific cooperation.
Additionally, on Friday, November 15th will take place the workshop of two PhD. students of the PhD. Developmental Science and Psychopathology, and the key speaker PhD. Louise Goupil. This event will take place at Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD).


Alexander J. Shackman (USA)

Director, Affective and Translational Neuroscience Laboratory | Core Faculty, Maryland Neuroimaging Center, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience & Cognitive Science (NACS) Program University of Maryland

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience (Clinical & CNS Area Groups), a core faculty member of the interdepartmental Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS) Program and the Maryland Neuroimaging Center (MNC), and the Director of the Affective and Translational Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Maryland. My work is supported by the National Institutes of Health and has led to more than 70 papers and chapters. I am Co-Editor of The Nature of Emotion (Oxford University Press), serve as Associate/Consulting Editor at several journals, and am an active member of the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology (HiTOP) research consortium. My laboratory’s research is focused on understanding the mechanisms that support the development and maintenance of internalizing disorders and substance abuse in the first three decades of life. Much of our work is focused on identifying the distributed neural circuitry underlying fearful and anxious states and traits (e.g., anxious temperament, behavioral inhibition, neuroticism). To understand the origins and course of this liability, we use a broad spectrum of tools—including multimodal neuroimaging (MRI, PET), acute pharmacological manipulations, peripheral physiological
measures, ecological momentary assessment (EMA), clinical interviews, machine-learning, and genetic analyses.


Tobias Hauser (UK)

Developmental Computational Psychiatry Lab, Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry & Ageing Research, University College London, UK

Tobias Hauser is a senior research associate and principal investigator at the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research, and the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging. He is interested in the neurocomputational processes underlying learning and decision making, and how these go awry in psychiatric disorders.

Tobias investigates how cognitive biases in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can help us better understand the neurocomputational mechanisms underlying this disorder. Moreover, he studies the influence of neurocognitive development on the emergence of psychiatric disorders. In his work, he combines neuroimaging, pharmacology, and computational modelling in humans with and without mental health problems. Tobias has received several prestigious prizes in psychiatry, such as the Emerging Leaders Prize in Adolescent Mental Health (2018) or the Kramer Pollnow Award (2017).

His work is supported by Wellcome, Royal Society, Medical Research Foundation, Jacobs Foundation,
Brain & Behavior Foundation and the Max Planck Society.

Marion Rouault (FR)

Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris

Marion Rouault is a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Cognitive Studies at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. She is interested in the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying metacognition, learning and decision-making in humans, which she investigates using carefully controlled behavioral experiments in tandem with computational modeling and neuroimaging, in healthy and patient populations.


Louise Goupil (FR)

IRCAM / STMS 1 place Igor Stravinsky, Paris, France

Louise Goupil is a post-doctoral researcher in Ircam. She was trained in cognitive sciences. During her PhD at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris), she investigated the development of self-reflective mechanisms and help-seeking communication in preverbal infants. Her current research interest is to try and understand how sounds convey emotions, attitudes and intentions, and allow us to communicate beyond language, and to learn and cooperate in social contexts. She relies on psychophysics and neuroimaging techniques, combined with sound synthesis and analysis tools, to study the socio-cognitive and metacognitive mechanisms involved in non-verbal (sound) communication, and their development during childhood. She is also interested in understanding how sonic behaviors foster joint action and social learning in human adults and young children, how
communication emerges, and the extent to which metacognition (reading oneself) maps
onto mindreading (reading others).
