Welcome to the Emotion, Health and Psychophysiology Lab
In the Emotion, Health, and Psychophysiology Lab we study embodiment -- how the mind influences the body, and the reciprocal, how bodily changes influence thoughts, emotions, and intentions. For example, we study how emotions are experienced differently along the developmental trajectory, how aging influences risk perception and risk taking, how decisions are influenced by acute and chronic stress, and how people manage and attempt to control their racial biases and how those regulatory attempts often fail resulting in revealing greater racial biases.
EHPL announces collaboration with Samsung and Sage Bionetworks on a new app based study that will monitor stress, emotion, and blood pressure levels in daily lives. The study harnesses new technology—an optic sensor in Samsung’s Galaxy S9—and an app “My BP Lab” developed by Sage Bionetworks. Learn More →
