Piotr Winkielman

UC San Diego

I study the interplay between emotion, cognition, embodiment and consciousness, particularly in the domain of social cognition.  Specifically, I am exploring unconscious affect, affective influences on decisions, and embodiment of affective processing.  I am also investigating the role of cognitive feelings, such as processing fluency or recall difficulty in a variety of judgments, ranging from attractiveness to memory. My work draws on a variety of psychological methods, including those of social neuroscience. Please see my lab page (here) for more details and the current list of publications.
