Guro Løseth

Cand.Psychol.

A former science journalist who turned to psychology and cognitive neuroscience after realizing that the really interesting questions are better asked on the other side of the microphone. I started working together with Siri Leknes in 2011 whilst still a student at the clinical psychology program at the University of Oslo. In 2016 I graduated as a Cand.Psychol.

In my current work, I investigate the neurochemistry of social reward processing through psychopharmacological studies and psychophysical investigations using self-report and autonomic measures.

I have a special interest in the links between social support, positive affect and resilience, and in building bridges between the fields of social affective neuroscience and clinical psychology. Another of my passions is science communication, and you’ll find links to some of my media appearances and popular science talks below.
