      Research

      My research

      Pilleriin's main research interests include emotions and emotion regulation across the wake-sleep cycle and their relationship to health and well-being. More specifically, she studies (1) the nature and continuity of emotional experiences across different states of consciousness—from wakefulness to mind-wandering (or daydreaming) to sleep; (2) how emotions experienced during dreaming are associated with emotion regulation in wakefulness; and (3) the psychological and neurobiological correlates of peace of mind—an aspect of mental well-being—and its relation to emotion regulation.

      In her research she uses a multidisciplinary and multilevel framework that draws on the concepts, theories, and research from philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and (molecular) biology and integrates different research areas, such as emotion research, sleep and dream research, consciousness research, and well-being research.

      Food – Gut – Brain – Mind – Health

      The study is a human study for healthy volunteers who for three weeks replace their usual diet with a ketogenic diet. Metabolic, microbiotic, neurobiological and clinical parameters are measured before and after the study. This means that a whole-body perspective is taken into account when it comes to health, but also the mental part as well as how the mentally status linked to the dietary change.
