Prof Morten Kringelbach
I came up to Oxford in 1998 to do my doctoral research on the functional neuroanatomy of emotion, after having studied at the University of Copenhagen and the Royal Academy of Arts, Denmark. In 2002 I came to The Queen’s College as a JRF and in 2006 started my own research group on pleasure, based in Oxford and at University of Aarhus, where I am also a Professor of Neuroscience. In 2011, together with Hugh McManners, I founded The Scars of War Foundation which is an interdisciplinary research center at Queen’s which is dedicated to advancing understanding of the effects of war and disaster. Recently, I have helped create the Music in the Brain centre in Denmark. I am also engaged with the Empathy Museum.
