Camp Statement
Go live Time :

Excerpted from Wikipedia:
As a researcher, Dr.Damasio main interest is the neurobiology of the mind, especially neural systems which subserve memory, language, emotion, and decision-making. His research has helped to elucidate the neural basis for the emotions and has shown that emotions play a central role in social cognition and decision-making. Damasio has formulated the somatic markers hypothesis.
As a clinician, he and his collaborators study and treat the disorders of behavior and cognition, and movement disorders.
Damasio books deal with the relationship between emotions and feelings, and what are their bases in the brain.
