(Honorary Research Associate & Newton International Fellow)
Dyutiman is currently a British Academy Newton International Fellow working on the psychological and neural basis of cross-cultural emotion transfer through films. The broad theme of his research interest is cultural neuroscience of social cognition with reference to emotion, art and creativity where he tries to integrate the psychological and neural processes. His research domain include EEG, fMRI and Eye-tracking based study of emotions in response to complex naturalistic stimuli like films, paintings, real-life stimuli, dance expressions and standard face-database. One of his focus areas is concerned with how the classification of emotions in Rasa theory of ancient Indian aesthetics can contribute to current cognitive neuroscience. Parallel to his academic career he is deeply involved in the fields of photography, film-making and other forms of visual art.
