Welcome to the Carolina Affective Science Lab at UNC

We study the psychological and neural processes that give rise to the emotions that people experience and see in others every day. Our research demonstrates that emotions are the products of more basic psychological “ingredients” that correspond to networks in the brain that interact in different ways across different contexts and people.
