MOOD AND EMOTION REGULATION IN EVERYDAY LIFE OF CEREBELLAR PATIENTS

This research line aims to investigate the mood alterations and the emotional functions in patient affected by cerebellar pathologies.
The Mood Monitoring (MoMo) device (Clausi et al. 2014) is used to characterize the mood alteration in patients affected by cerebellar ataxia.
Moreover, the research is carried out by using specific experimental paradigms (e.g.: gambling tasks) to explore whether the cerebellum is involved in feelings subtending the decision-making processes.
