Dr. Ute Kreplin teaches the Brain and Behaviour paper in Palmerston North. She worked at Oxford and Coventry University in the UK on a project investigating the neuro-stimulation of supernatural beliefs. She completed a PhD in Affective Neuroscience at Liverpool John Moores University. Her PhD looked at prefrontal cortex activation during the experience of emotion in an aesthetic context. Her current research aims to understand activation in the prefrontal cortex in relation to emotional and social processing in aesthetic context. She uses functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure blood flow in the cortex.
