Areti Chouchourelou was exceptionally lucky to train in one of the most influential labs in the study of biological motion perception under the guidance of Pr. Shiffrar. She has been studying the perception of the human body. Early influences on her work originate in the neuroscience of emotions and social cognition while she is currently moving into potential ways to sustain affiliative responses to life through the use of Digital Games and Virtual Reality. She is currently working from an Assistant Professor position at the European University Cyprus.
