Emotion processing in sleep paralysis
In our dynamic society, high-quality sleep is essential for physical and mental well-being. Sleep paralysis is a condition that temporarily paralyzes individuals as they transition between sleep and wakefulness, often accompanied by intense hallucinations and strong fears.
Our project addresses the neurological and emotional aspects of sleep paralysis, a phenomenon that has been little researched to date. We employ an innovative methodology that combines EEG and fMRI to unravel patterns of neural connectivity during emotion processing in individuals with and without experience of sleep paralysis.
Our goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the neural-emotional dynamics in sleep paralysis and explore innovative therapeutic strategies and diagnostic tools, thereby laying the foundation for more effective interventions and improved patient care and well-being.
