My thesis project aims to examine the behavioral and neural correlates of affective processing in people with depressive symptoms. Depression is a mood disorder that may cause processing bias and negative evaluation of sensory information. To further investigate the contextual influence of faces on voice judgement of people with depressive symptoms, our project will employ electroencephalography (EEG) and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure brain activity associated with emotion processing bias in depression.
