How can we become better emotion regulators, and how can changes in emotion regulation impact mental and physical health? How does the healthy human brain subserve the processes of emotion experience and emotion regulation, and how are these processes altered in different forms of psychopathology? To address these questions, my lab employs a translational social cognitive neuroscience approach involving longitudinal analysis of emotion self-reports, health behavior, psychophysiology, and neuroimaging (including structural and functional MRI).
