This lab is dedicated to research in personality and intelligence and to the training of undergraduate students on experimental methods in psychology with an emphasis on psychophysiological recording techniques.
There are two current lines of research in the lab. The first project is aimed at understanding extraversion. The differences between introverts and extraverts in terms of sensory and motor activity is explored using different types of psychophysiological recording. the second project involves examining differences between individuals in cognitive ability. A comparison is made between standardized test scores and brain activity related to the automatic discrimination among tones.
