APS

 

Research from the Emotion Regulation Lab was presented at the Association for Psychological Science’s 27th Annual Convention in New York, NY over the Memorial Day weekend.  Five posters featured new research from the lab on emotional flexibility, how emotional stimuli that are relevant and irrelevant to computerized tasks may affect the allocation of attention, an investigation into the behavioral effects of a genetic polymorphism that may contribute to the development of generalized anxiety disorder, and a behavioral-economic study of the relationship between defects in executive functioning (i.e., impulsivity) and hypothetical patterns of alcohol consumption in young adult social drinkers.

Lab members Helen Tan, Olga Gulyayeva, Laura Egan, and Courtney Louis present their poster at the APS convention.
