Pascal Vrticka is a Lecturer / Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology, University of Essex (UK). His main field of research is promoting a social neuroscience approach to study the behavioural, biological, and brain basis of human attachment, caregiving, and social relationships more generally. For his research, Pascal Vrticka uses both first- and second-person social neuroscience methods, including (f)MRI, EEG, and fNIRS hyperscanning. He combines these methods with biomarkers of wellbeing and health, as well as with narrative and self-report measures of relationship quality, attachment, and caregiving.
