Dr Gonzalo Arrondo

University position

Research Associate


Department of Psychiatry



Research Theme

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience


My research is centered in the study of the relationship between high-order decision making and emotion in neuropsyquiatric patients such as those with depression. For this aim my main tools are functional neuroimaging (specifically fMRI), cognitive-behavioral paradigms and neuropsychological testing.

Research Focus





decision making


Clinical conditions

Alzheimer's disease

Anxiety disorders

Bipolar disorder

Depressive disorders

Personality disorders


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
