Research Description

My main research interests lie in the area of affective and cognitive neuroscience, with an emphasis on the neural correlates of emotion-cognition interactions. In particular, my graduate work involves examination of the role of individual differences in influencing the impact of emotional information on various cognitive processes (social cogintion, emotion regulation, episodic memory). Methodologically, I employ a range of techniques that assess different aspects of nervous system activity (e.g., fMRI, EEG/ERPs, skin conductance, eye tracking) in conjunction with behavioral and neuropsychological assessment tools.

Building Remodeling Projects

Click on the title to check out these pictures from the classroom remodeling project in the basement. A second project to replace the elevators will begin in September. Beginning with the freight elevator, each elevator will be out of service for three months. To get quickly from one floor to another, and improve your fitness, we will encourage the use of the stairs. The repainting of the northeast stairwell has been completed, and the painter is starting on the southwest stairwell.
