Simone Schnall studies the relationship between cognitive and affective processes. In particular, she is interested in how embodiment informs and constrains thought and feeling. Currently, she is investigating the interactions between bodily cues, affective states and cognitive variables such as judgment and decision making. Some of this work has been funded by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health (United States), the National Science Foundation (United States), and the Economic and Social Research Council (United Kingdom).
