Brain and face

Most psychologists recognize that emotions are necessary for survival. Our lab is interested in understanding how emotional states impact the way people understand and interact with their worlds. Specifically, we are investigating the ways emotions guide behavior and interpret information.

Our current projects include:

Emotion regulation and post-traumatic stress:

Resolving ambiguity:

Affective responses to victimization:

What will this lab experience provide to students?
