The Applied Cognitive Regulation (ACR) LabĀ integrates basic and applied approaches to understand how people adapt their attention and emotion to short- and long-term stressors. We are interested in questions such as how people adapt to the cognitive demands present in real-world contexts and what works for whom. The overarching goal of our research is to facilitate healthy self-regulation, performance, and wellbeing.

Research at the ACR lab is based on an interdisciplinary foundation that leverages multimodal assessment methodologies, including behavioral (e.g., eye-tracking and human performance), psychophysiological (e.g., cardiovascular activity and electroencephalography), and self-report (e.g., experience sampling) measures.
