Research topic: Integrating basic and applied science in order to study the underlying mechanisms of emotion regulation and self-regulation among healthy and clinical populations.
Research methods: Experiential, behavioral, physiological and electrophysiological methods.
Main projects in the lab include:
- Understanding core regulatory stages that control emotion including: 1) Identification of the need to regulate emotions, 2) Selecting among available regulatory options, 3) Actively implementing different regulatory options and 4)Monitoring the ongoing operation of regulatory options.
- How impairments in core regulatory stages is related to various psychopathologies.
