NEUROPHYSIOLOGY OF SILENCE

NEUROPHYSIOLOGY OF SILENCE

Nowadays, experts in neuroscience, physiology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and in many other humanistic and scientific disciplines wonder about the role of silence in the various aspects of our lives. Some of these aspects are emotions, awareness of ourselves and the world around us, consciousness and well-being.

Currently, the RINED Neuroscientific Department is studying the neurophysiology of silence, in relation to cognitive functioning, emotion regulation, and specific behaviors. To this aim, we use non-invasive techniques that allow to measure cortical activity (EEG), heart rate variability (HRV), skin conductance, respiratory rate, time perception, and molecular changes (through a small saliva sample).
