Queens Affective Neuroscience Laboratory
We employ behavioral and EEG methods to study interactions between emotion and cognition. We are interested in how emotion interacts with cognitive control to influence metabolic resources, cognition, and memory. An additional focus is the influence these interactions have on social factors such as the activation and use of attitudes, stereotyping, social perception, and prosocial behaviors.
Another line of research examines deficits in emotional processing associated with neuronal damage in the amygdala and other brain areas for individuals with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
