The Emotion Science Lab investigates topics of research that typically centralize on emotion and measure it via physiological and behavioral measures. Recent topics of investigation have centered on: (1) defining and differentiating discrete emotions, (2) exploring situations under which people will intentionally choose to elicit negative emotions, (3) assessing the physiological and subjective measurement of different emotion regulation strategies, (4) comparing responses to situations of personal vs vicarious ostracism, and (5) measuring the physiological and subjective emotional responses to aversive actions. Please refer to the Lab Presentations and Lab Publications pages for more information on these studies.

What is emotion? How is it regulated? How is it communicated?
