Research Focus
Psychology: experimental research, neuroscience, mobile psychological interventions (e.g. psychotherapy chatbot)

Jarosław Michałowski, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor and Dean of SWPS University’s Faculty of Psychology and Law in Poznań. He is a psychotherapist and a supervisor of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Professor Michałowski is also the Head of the Laboratory of Affective Neuroscience. The Laboratory researches brain activity in people suffering from various psychological disorders with a goal to develop treatments alleviating these conditions. The research team, led by Professor Michałowski, uses experimental research methods. The lab is equipped with an electroencephalograph (EEG) – for recording brain activity, electrocardiograph (ECG) – for measuring heart rate, and equipment for measuring electrodermal activity. For example, the team worked on finding treatments for phobias, such as arachnophobia. Currently, the researchers are working on a new interdisciplinary project, combining psychology, linguistics, and artificial intelligence. They are developing a psychotherapy chatbot, called Fido, for use by adolescents. Fido will be easily accessible on mobile devices for quick psychological interventions.

The most exciting thing about being a researcher is developing ideas, which help to explain the world and human nature and developing research projects from research questions. It requires a lot of creativity and many consultations with other researchers in the team, who develop different ideas. The next very, very exciting moment is when you first look at the results of your research, because this is the time when you can really show what you have been investigating for the past four or five years.

Hear Prof. Michałowski speak about:

Neuroscience, experimental research projects, and developing a psychotherapy chatbot

Guided by Professor Michałowski, take a tour of SWPS University’s Laboratory of Affective Neuroscience, see how researchers track brain activity and physiological signals during actual or evoked activities and learn how this research leads to devising therapies for people suffering from various forms of anxiety disorders, such as phobias. Hear Professor Michałowski speak about an exciting interdisciplinary project aimed at developing a psychotherapy chatbot and how it not only leads to the development of a new psychotherapy tool, but also challenges and expands the knowledge of the team members who work on the project.

Research Center
Laboratory of Affective Neuroscience

The Laboratory of Affective Neuroscience carries out experimental research in the field of cognitive neuroscience and neuroscience of emotions. Using the evoked potential methodology, researchers analyze the activity of the brain during the completion of tasks, which engage cognitive and emotional processes. Currently, the Center focuses on the relation between regulation of emotion deficits and executive functions as well as predictors of procrastination development and technology addiction.
