Eleanor Palser, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow
Fields of Interest: 

Dr. Palser joined the Clinical Affective Neuroscience (CAN) Lab in December 2018. Eleanor works with the UCSF Dyslexia Center, studying social and emotional processing in neurodevelopmental conditions, such as dyslexia and autism. To do this, she combines self-report, physiological and neuroimaging methods. Previously, she received a PhD degree in cognitive neuroscience from University College London. During her doctoral studies, she investigated the role of afferent bodily signals or "interoception" in several aspects of cognition and emotion, applying this to the clinical features of autism and anxiety.
