Posted on


Research from the Emotion Regulation Lab was presented at the Association for Psychological Science’s 27th Annual Convention, held in New York between May 21 and May 24, 2015.  The lab’s five poster presentations include data and analyses from almost all of the lab’s current research projects, and discussed our findings on the effectiveness of a mobile application designed to reduce anxiety in pregnant women, emotional flexibility as a measure of adaptive regulation, the effects of task-relevant and task-irrelevant emotional stimuli on attention, an investigation into a genetic polymorphism that may be a risk factor in the development and maintenance of generalized anxiety disorder, and a behavioral-economic study of the relationship between trait impulsivity and implicit associations about alcohol in social drinkers.
