Emotion and Cognitive Control Lab

Emotion and Cognitive Control Laboratory

The Emotion and Cognitive Control Lab investigates the behavioral and neural mechanisms underlying emotion-cognition interactions. Our current projects focus on the manner in which emotion can enhance or impair cognition (and vice versa) in normal functioning individuals, clinical populations, and older adults.

Methods

We use a variety of research methods including cognitive tasks, questionnaires, and event-related brain potentials (ERP) to examine affective and cognitive processes.
