“Although we know from real life that people regularly approach and explore highly intense negative stimuli, we know very little about this phenomenon from the perspective of psychological science. In this research project, I study why and when people experience morbid curiosity and how this experience is represented in the brain.”
Suzanne will be presenting an introduction to the theme of Morbid Curiosity which we consider to be an interesting and relevant topic for the field of Psychology. through recent years there has been a rise of interest in Morbid Themes in Media. From the success of True Crime podcasts and shows such as Dahmer, the trend of Morbid themes in media does not seem to be stopping any time soon. From a social to a biological point of view, we do consider this lecture to be very relevant to Psychology Students.
Its going to be on the 22nd of January from 15:00 – 16:00 at A2.09.
